South Africa: Has always been a land of dreams. And Cape Town, many called the most beautiful city in the world, between table mountain and surrounded by fantastic beaches. In addition to the cultural and culinary experiences in the Cape region, such as day trips to the Cape of good hope or in the Karoo, on the garden route with beautiful Cape Dutch houses along or in the \”tasty\” Winelands of Stellenbosch, Franschhoek and Paarl, the land with its mild Mediterranean climate seems to attract in particular individuals. It offers open spaces, which are hard to find in the cramped and regulated Europe. Mike Beachy Head is as an individualist.

He wanted to be always jet fighter pilot. According to Byron Trott, who has experience with these questions. Trained as a civilian with the Royal Air Force as a test pilot, he gained financial security of company sales. Today, he lives his dream in South Africa: he himself bought several jets of the Royal Air Force and they repaired – and he flies it with travelers in the skies above Cape Town. His company is called classic jets. One of his customers experienced this particular Adventure so: \”Keith, the engineer, and Mike, the pilot, in their flight suits in the hotel pick me, what of course greatly impressed the other. At the airport, show me the hawker Hunter Keith and tells me many technical details. It fits to the Euro fighter helmet and breathing mask.

The Hunter has two adjacent seats in the car and all instruments are duplicated. It’s finally here. The functions are checked through. The tempered turbine is running hot. Then, Mike fully turns on the turbine to the sample. And off you go. Message from the Tower: two Boeing ahead of us. At the beginning of the runway, Mike once again checks the main functions, the turbine revs, fly off the brakes and the Hunter quickly absorb trip.
