DURBAN-LAND SEA AND AIR FESTIVAL FRIDAY 21 MARCH 2014
By WILLIE BODENSTEIN
Day two of the Sky Grand Prix and during the morning the sky remained overcast. Friday, being a public holiday meant that Durbanites and out of town visitors flocked to the beachfront to see the second leg of the eliminations. Only five of the ten South African entries would qualify for the finals. The five overseas pilots all had a free pass into the finals.
The Team of KZN Skydivers again showed their skills when all despite a rather strong wind flew their canopies, after having jumped from the Antonov AN2, with precision and landed safely on the beach between the Surf and crowd line.
The weather improved as the day progressed and after lunch the sun was out and more and more visitors arrived to enjoy the free show on Durban's renowned beachfront and they were treated to the cream of the crop of South Africa's display pilots and teams.
