Wat is hierdie?
« on: January 24, 2021, 10:10:02 pm »
Speel rond op Google Earth, wil gaan rondry. Hierdie "baan" is so 50km vanaf Pofadder, omtrent 19km suid van die N14.
Ek weet daar is n stuk op die N14, buite Pofadder wat "gesertifiseer" is vir hoŽ spoed. Oppad van Pella af Upington toe dit gesien asook verskeie voertuie wat getoets is.(Februarie 2015)

Old, grey, crafty...

You can do anything if you have enthusiasm. Enthusiasm is the yeast that makes your hopes rise to the stars. Enthusiasm is the sparkle in your eyes, the swing in your gait, the grip of your hand, the irresistible surge of will and energy to execute your ideas. Enthusiasts are fighters. They have fortitude. They have staying qualities. Enthusiasm is at the bottom of all progress. With it, there is accomplishment. Without it, there are only alibis.
Henry Ford

Ek het n gedagte dis die Compions se plaas waar verskeie fabrikate motors toets veral voertuie langdurig buite laat staan om te sien hoe duursaam is die dash en res van binne kant in daardie hoŽ hitte.

Wasnt that all up in the air pre-COVID due to finances? Pretty sure those plans have been permanently shelved now

I suggested to Alexander that we route an Amageza special via the dirt tracks at the facility, but it was too much of a mission. Would have been cool though.

Edit: I got the date wrong.

Clearly they upgraded the surface. And the smaller "twisties" since the image from 2017.

Ek dink daai aanloopbaan is so lank gemaak destyds sodat die Flossies hom maklik kan gebruik.  :deal:

Het donkiejare gelede 'n army (lugmag)  kamp daar gedoen en die storie wat ons gekry het was dat die aanloopbaan gebou is sodat 747's op Upington kon brandstof kry in die dae toe hulle nie oor Afrika mog vlieg nie. Maar selfs met daardie lengte, kon 'n volgelaaide een slegs opstyg as die omwgewingstemperatuur onder 30 (ek dink?) grade Celcius was. By geleentheid het 'n vol vliegtuig tot in die vroeŽ oggendure moes wag vir die temperatuur om tot op daardie vlak te daal!  :o

Ek dink Piet Karsten het op n stadium druiwe uitgevlieg buiteland toe direk vanaf Upington. Dit moes 747's gewees het.

Soos ek die storie het het Piet daardie GROOOOOT Russiese vragvliegtuig gebruik.

Maar ek is voorbereid dat my storie verkeerd kan wees.
