Some photos from the loft

I was browsing through my files and found some old photos from South African races.
Alos Andre (the co-pilot of the F2 FALCON 700RSR) sent me some photos from his archives.
Thought that you may be interested to see them.
Here we go.

This is the team after a win on the F2 races this year

Dirk Schlecter (Pilot) and André Beuster (Co-pilot). Both are some of the nicesest, friendly and sincere people I have met in my life time.

If you ever have the chance to visit South Africa try to visit the area during the Transagulhas Challenge races (ZapCats and RIBs Open class, F1, F2 and F3) end December / begining January.

I believe that is an expereince that it should not be missed.

Manos, do you have a picture of a boat actually in the water rather than airborne ? Do all Falcons have to be driven like this or is it optional ? Why bother with the Rib bit ? why not just bolt the engine on the seat and go for it.
