Rat Catcher, I notice yr registered from Nairobi. What type of aircraft was 5Y-RAW which got burnt up in Somalia a few months ago when a couple of the local war lords had a falling out?

If its the one I think you mean, our friendly paparazzi got a bit carried away :D :D
It was a Nevergo(Sorry! Navajo) that got in between a couple of AK 47's and was better ventilated for it. Flying quite happily now plus a few patches :p :p :p
