I took these photos today of a plane crash on the beach in front of campers... i saw it go down and the two pilots were taken to hospital...

Crazyness... the waves are also amazing here at Cool Bay Western Cape

That's something those campers will never forget.  At least the plane is not a wreck, so hopefully the pilots are OK.  Look, as campers we expect many things to happen around us, but a plane crash!   Fortunately it did not land on one of the caravans.

Yow....

Close call for the camper's

probibly the worst thing I've ever seen happen is several years ago, at Umtentwenie, (Tobie had just taken over) a blooming a branch from a tree over one of the sites on the terrace on the left as you go down the entrance road, split off and fell through a tent...

Can't exactly remember the extent of the injuries, but one of the kids got hurt quite badly....

Slightly quicker downhill....
These days a teeny-tiny bit more slightly quicker....

Dankie vir die goeie fotos v d ramp. Hoop net met die nou ontkoming is almal OK.

Die kamp lyk nogals of dit mooi daar kan wees. Hoe lyk dit met inligting oor hoe die kampplek deesdae is. Ek sien min gese oor die plek - dalk is daar nie veel te se nie!!!!!

Looks like an old WW2 bird, P51 Mustang? From the name on the nose it appears to belong to Thunder City, the people flying old military planes from CT International. Hope it can be repaired, these old planes are very rare now. If I remember correctly they had a fatal crash a few years ago where an English Electric Lightning crashed.

Dink dit is n Thunder Mustang, n 2/3de replika. Regtig pragtig, lyk darem om of n goeie paar uur dit sal kan herstel. Wonder wat se enjin daar gebruik word met die 12 uitlaaypype.

Ek dink hulle gebruik 'n twaalfsilinder 9,8 l Falconer, 640 pk (477 kw) teen 4500 opm.

Dit lyk net asof die kraglewering op nul was ten tyde van hierdie landing. Daardie skroef het duidelik stilgestaan.

Dit lyk my die kampers het n verrasing gekry toe hul wag vir hul skip om te kom toe kry hul n aeroplane. Solank niemand beseer is.
