Jeb Injured in Cape Town

Recommended Posts

Hope he is OK. There can be some quite tricky winds off of Table Mountain.

If not familiar with Table Mountain, it actually faces North (the usual postcard shot of the mountain behind the city) so winds like today S/SW come over the mountain onto the city. I was there two weeks ago flying helicopters and on a similar day & conditions turned the helicopter back just as I rounded the corner to fly in front of the mountain instead of proceeding to fly around the Cape. It was another heli pilot who warned me on the radio how “bouncy” it was and I heeded his advice and local knowledge. At around 20mph they even stop running the cable car taking tourists to the top.

More like a touch-and-go.

I think several people did those last year.
Karr hit a tree, I think Jokke scraped a bush, and I think there where quite a few others that cut it a few meters closer than they should have...

Luigi scraped a tree in Rio while doing the Christ statue flights YEEEEAAAARS ago... He was with Jeb too
