TEAM RV SA MAKES DEBUT AT THE COVES IN HONOR OF GEORGE BRINK
By Juri Keyter
Residents of the Coves near the Hartbeespoort Dam arranged a fly-in on Saturday 14 September 2013 to celebrate the life of George Brink who tragically died with his father “Wally” during the President's Trophy Air Race in 2011. As George was passionate about Van's RV aircraft, the flypast of South Africa's new RV formation team was extremely appropriate. Their display was flawless as they did their first pass in a tight four-ship formation. The second pass was a missing man formation which brought tears to many of the locals who knew George very well.
Team RV SA was originally started by Ryan Beaton and Rob Kennedy but quickly grew to the five members we saw on the day.
Neil Murray, Rob Kennedy, Paul Quick, Ryan Beaton, Neil Jackson
I must add that the hospitality of the Coves residents were first class but I also thank our good friend Jan Hannekom in particular for inviting us over to once again celebrate the life of George and Wally Brink.
