Rob and Dee Overland in Africa 2014 – 10,000 miles – 4 months – 10 countries

Aerials

Rob did it again! He, with a lot of help from Jean and David two gyro friends, put the icing on the cake of my Africa adventures. At 4:30 pm Thursday with the skies clearing we were in the air in two Magni gyro planes. These are open cockpit tandem cockpit gyros of Italian design – sleek and very stable. We flew out to the coast, saw whales cavorting in the surf, went toward the city of Cape Town with Table Mountain and other peaks describing the far horizon. What a fantastic geographic setting – mountains, plains, sea and city! Flew low and slow over it all and headed back as the sun was setting – coming through the pass between Table Mountain and Lion’s Head. Added the finishing touch and another fantastic perspective on the adventures of Africa. Thank you, thank you all. dee
