I just checked, and there are actually several decent books on the aircraft too; I was actually rather surprised.

Oh my! Fantastic news for sure. We live in the best of times for LSP.

Isn’t there a Swiss 108 hanging inside the Zurich Flughaven?

At last! I was sure one would finally come from Eastern Europe. And I particularly appreciate the arrival of a new actor!

I checked out these little airplanes online, and Good GRIEF they want a fortune for them. 

 

And it's not like they're rare or anything.

 

Are they that nice of an airplane?

 

One thing's for sure; the bloody prop turns the wrong way.

Great news !  love than little aircraft, though i've never heard about that manufacturer.


Following the big Photobucket rip-off attempt, all my pictures on the forum cannot display anymore. I try to reupload the RFI pictures, but i'm not sure i'd have enough time and energy to reupload the pictures of the WIP threads. If you're interested in a specific subject and want me to reupload some pictures, just let me know. :)

So we're all excited, let's hope it's not just window dressing and that this little beauty comes to fruition. If it does, who knows they might do a Bestmann next!! :)
