Um dos meus correspondentes visitou recentemente a África do Sul e enviou-me algumas imagens que vou compartilhar com vocês.
Um dos locais que visitou foi Thunder City.
Thunder City is unique and well known for its pioneering work in the aviation industry. It is the largest civilian owned collection of ex-military jets in the world, with an impeccable safety record of the fleet of jets, which have flown more than 1,600 incident-free sorties. The base flies and maintains the world’s last four flying English Electric Lightnings and three BAE Buccaneers, as well as seven Hawker Hunters, a Strikemaster and a Puma (SA 330) helicopter with glass cockpit.
Choose from a variety of jet flight profiles; ultra high, supersonic, aerobatic, surface-hugging, formation or a combination of these. Whatever the nature of your fighter jet flight dream is, we will make it happen for you.
Thunder City offers you a unique chance to fly in some of the most exciting, graceful and robust combat jets. Thunder City operates the world’s only flying English Electric Lightnings, the famous cold war supersonic jet interceptor and the world’s only flying Bae Buccaneers, the famous low-level tactical nuclear-capable jet bomber. We also have the largest fleet of flying Hawker Hunter jets, the pride of the Royal Air Force and the most successful British fighter jet ever built.
These amazing jets are meticulously maintained by former air force engineers and always flown well within their performance limitations. Even so we do not take safety for granted. Therefore you will be trained to safely use the aircraft’s emergency systems such as the ejection seat, emergency oxygen etc.
