Secunda Spring Festival 2018

By Charmaine Oliver

The weekend of 5 – 6 October was the end of the annual Secunda Spring Festival.

It was celebrated by Scully and his team with a brilliant display in the Pitt’s Flying Cows.

As usual Secunda did not disappoint with the magical sunset and you could feel the festivity in the air.

On Saturday there was a total of 23 aircraft that participated in the Speed Rally hosted by Secunda Flying Club and SAPFA. A well organised event and the first of its kind. It was enjoyed by skilled pilots and navigators. Herewith are a few photos of the event.
