2014 / 09 Some little news...

Finally and after a long search I have now both of Orlebar's books about the Sudan Defence Force. A good read about a unit hardly anything was written ever. I wish there would be a re-publication using good maps and many, many more photos – but I fear that this will not be…

A sad news: My beautiful little 1:76 scale Matchbox SAS-Jeep suffered total destruction. It stood nice and safe in a vitrine for years – until the day, my wife decided the vitrine has to be cleaned…. by VACUUM CLEANER. That was the end of the Jeep. I don't want to say more about that event.

But – something else is much moreimportant: I am now a member of Jack Valenti's Long Range Desert Group Preservation Society. They were the first to rebuild one of the famous LRDG-Chevrolets in the 1980ies and run it until present.

For the 'day of the open door” at the landing ground Speck-Fehraltorf I had the chance to fly there with the Stinson L-5 of the -CAF Swiss Wing_. We spent a nice and interesting day in a very friendly and relaxing atmosphere.

A nice week spent in Northern Italy… focussing a little bit on aircraft. The Idroscalo in Como and the Museo Gianni Caproni in Trento.
