From Eddie Gold: “Johan Wiklund and SE-AMO have arrived safely at Stellenbosch airfield to a fantastic reception. We don’t have the actual time yet of touchdown, but whether he made it for exactly 3:10pm or not is only a secondary thought compared to the massive undertaking this brave but humble pilot has achieved. To fly an 80 year old aircraft from the northernmost tip of mainland Europe, all the way to the most southerly tip of Africa with no modern instruments or following support is a true epic in the sense of the word. He has certainly done Gosta Andree and all other Swedish aviators proud.
We reckon there will be a big party today at Stellenbosch and we look forward to images and accounts from the celebrations. But for now, Mission Accomplished…give that man a beer!”
