an aviation enthusiast some 40+ years ago. And yes, the photo is a few
years old taken in the cockpit of TransAviaExport Ilyushin Il-76TD
(EW-78792) above Minsk in 2008.
Danish but living in
Pretoria, South Africa since 2010. Before that I lived for a few
years in Bolivia which provided me with some wonderful opportunities
flights. Missed some chances, but noteworthy ones I did make
included TAM Canadair CL-66B Cosmopolitan, Casa 212 and a Xian MA-60.
Flights on Boeing
747SP, Tupolev Tu-134, Antonov An-12, De Havilland Dove,
Brittan-Norman Trislander, Gulfstream III, Hawker Siddeley 125-700,
Citation I, Junckers Ju-52 and Douglas DC-4 are among other
memorable flights I have taken in the last 10 years.
My first commercial
flight was only in 1996 aged 22, so can't even bare to think about
the things that I missed whilst a youngster.
I have taken
the AVIATION ADVENTURES initiative to South Africa in an attempt to
bring like-minded enthusiasts together in Johannesburg over a few
days making chartering of interesting aircraft somewhat more affordable
through cost sharing.
