Thunder City Silenced!

In news that has shook the aviation world; Thunder City, Cape Town, South Africa has cancelled all flying operations. The base was the only place in the world to see English Electric Lightnings and Blackburn Buccaneers; as well as five immaculate Hawker Hunters.
Flying ops were ceased after the tragic death of Dave Stock in E.E.Lightning ZU-BEX following a crash at the Overberg airshow.
The decision has been taken after considering a number of factors including the uncertainty of the current ecenomic climate, problems with the authorities and uncertain income.
