Nice work Julian! How many hours do you have on your Escapade?

The awards for Escapade/Highlander's just keep piling up

Julian,
Congratulations on the award, - from what I see, you deserve it. Sweet looking airplane.

Thanks for sharing the pics of the SAA gathering, must have been great fun, especially with a trophy to take home!

P.S. Send the sun back up this way if you are finished with it, it's freezing in my workshop!
