1986 O.F.S. Provincial Air Rally
Held at Tempe – 20 September 1986
By Renier Moolman
Nico “Omar” Gordon with his new navigator and partner in practise, Dr Slabbert, both from Bloem Flying Club, has made it two third places in a row. So it looks like their little Cessna 150 EGY’s lucky number is three. It being only the second major rally they took part in, shows that “die ou manne” are going to have to watch their tails in future.
Fourth place and scoring team points in every rally they have taken part in is the team of the Mooney LHE and the Mostert brothers, Dave and Anton. If this young team from Pletermaritzburg carries on as they are, selection for the next National Team will only be a formality.
Springbok Adrian Pilling from ‘Maritzburg, not,only won the landings competition, but together with his navigator Robert Crosskill took sixth overall position. Adrian put down a “zero”, the only man in the competition to do so. He was followed by Andre van Kraayenberg and M Holmes each scoring 10 penalties.
