The Stellenbosch 2019 airshow known as FASHKOSH sold out the 5 000 tickets for a capacity crowd by Wednesday last week. The show was a mix of vintage and modern General Aviation aircraft, as well as the highly acclaimed Absolute Aviation aerobatic Team Extreme. The SAAF participated with the Air Force’s premier display team the Silver Falcons, showcasing their personal flying capabilities. The highlight of the day had to be the Mango Airlines Boeing 737 flown by doyen of airshows, Captain Scully Levine, Captain Rodney Chin and Bruce Hyde. The Stellenbosch Flying Club can be proud of staging a most successful airshow with an interesting mix of seldom seen aircraft types. A full illustrated report will be published in the May edition of African Pilot.
