Never again.
« on: July 09, 2013, 08:50:45 am »
Have you ever arrived at a destination where you cannot wait to get the Hell out as fast as possible and vow never to return? I have been to such a place three years ago and I am only able to talk about it now. After taking Medication upon arrival and being haunted for a very long time by this ghastly experience I can reveal the name of this Place. Lüderitz in Nam.

Seker OK as jy 'n boot het en visvang of iets. Mens kan ook gaan 4X4 in die duine maar dan kan jy eerder in Clanwilliam gaan bly en duine toe ry.

Maar om daar vir 'n naweek te bly.... No thanks.

i just returned from the DRC - lubumbashi.

i flew up there to go do an aerial survey for one of the copper mines there.

the red tape i had to endure in order to do my work was atrocious!!! for every step forward you have to take 6 back. every person you encounter claims to have some sort of authority and wont let you proceed without a permit of some sort - everyone, from the CAA inspector, gate guard at the airport, desk clerk in the briefing office, the air traffic controller, airport police, airport fire brigade, airport weather guy etc etc. they ALL stop you in your tracks.

on any given day you would be called back to the airport building/briefing office/control tower at least three times. every time it's a matter of shutting down the engine, unstrapping, and walking 500m back to the building. then phoning your handler/liaison to come and interpret, because the d@@s in question all of a sudden cannot speak English [anymore].

the one day i had to ask the airport manager, in person, for permission to fly. on another day i was told that i had to pay landing fees for another south african aircraft who failed to pay his fees months ago. on another day they wanted to arrest me for flying over a mine camp (and in that place you cant swing a cat without it going over a mine). the list goes on and on and on......

after 5 days i was ready to come back, after a week i was gagging to get out of there, and after two weeks i was shaking with frustration and anger at how they go out of their way to curb you.

Dronkies by the car window??   We dreamed of dronkies by the car window. We had to live in  a hole in ground and lick theroad clean with our tongues........  with my best apologizes to Monty Python.

But seriously, have anyone seen Umtata lately????
And this is of interest for any and every petrol or gearhead....
