Rhodesian AF Air to air contact comment

Gordon,



Saw on your choppertech blog about the only air-to-air combat during the bush war. I ‘d heard the story from the other side – the pilot of the other plane was actually an RAF instructor who was training up the BDF Air Wing at the time. His name was Tony someone who I came across in Gaborone in the early 80s. He told me he’d actually visited Thornhill after the war to meet up with you guys and mull over the story.



Good luck for the book.



Dave Crossley

I welcome comments from everyone on my book Choppertech.
I am interested especially on hearing from former ZANLA and ZIPRA combatants who also have thier story to tell.
