Celebrating Friday Photo Weekend!

You won’t have to wait another week for your next dose of Friday Photo. It was one year ago this month that Air Facts launched this popular weekly feature with the impetus of friends sending us photos of their flights home from Oshkosh. Thanks to all the readers who have submitted photos all year long. Today through Sunday, we’ll be posting a whole bunch of Friday photos, so stop by Air Facts often to see the latest.

Of course, we are always hunting for our next Friday Photo. We will continue to share the joy, beauty and fun of flying through our Friday Photos. If you have such a photo, send it our way to [email protected] and fill in the text for the Friday Photo format.

The view: Table Mountain in Cape Town, South Africa

The pilot: Bob Heimann

The photographer: Ross Leighton

The airplane: Sling 2 (South African designed and built)

The mission: We set off with no particular mission, simply to enjoy the scenery and weather and be in the air. Along the way we encountered a couple of mates doing the same and ended up having a lunch at another airfield and then meandered back to our home airfield where this photo was taken. We pilots are privileged to be able to do this!

The memory: A “pearler” of a winters’ day in Cape Town.
