Progress report on Colin -- Schalk Rabe

Colin took a walk down the road today, his stitches are out and the dressings have been discarded, so he is rapidly returning to full health.

Chris Freeman built and equipped an electric Sig Kadett Junior which he presented to Colin today as a get well gift from all the Vintage Flyers.

Needless to say Colin is deeply moved by this and can't wait to fly her!

A big thank you to Chris !

Best wishes,

Schalk, Jolene and Stan

News of Colin's back operation -- Schalk Rabe

We saw Colin over the weekend and are happy to report that he is progressing well. The medical staff get him out of bed for a short and assisted walk each day and although unsteady, he manages.

He is now able to receive visitors more freely and would love to see you.

As a reminder - he is in Section 8 on the first floor of Garden City Clinic and as he in a private room visiting times are fairly flexible, other than at mealtimes and when he is receiving medical attention.

Harry's MVVS Evolution petrol engine. There's some fine engineering in that carb. Equally fine is the on-board starter. No messing about flicking the prop, just a switch on the transmitter, very cool -- see clip below.
