DH9 restoration

Postby kill_devil » Wed Oct 11, 2017 12:39 pm

I am currently based in the UK working for a historic aircraft restoration company restoring WW1 and WW2 aircraft. Our latest work is an airworthy DH9 that will soon be get its permit to test.

I believe Pierre van Ryneveld with Quinton Brand flew a DH9 on the last leg of his record breaking flight from London to Cape Town in 1920.

We urgently need to contact Jens Frischmuth of http://www.goingairside.com. Our emails to his address are being rejected.

He is connected to South African National Museum of Military History and we urgently seek his advice.

Can anyone help?

Hi Kill Devil

You will most certainly get the desired response if you post your request on the SAAF Museum site on Facebook. Just type in SAAF Museum.

Good luck.
