They still run up 1722, on a monthly basis. The next run is on the 30th August.

Yes, was still there a couple of weeks back. Coords. are 594324.14 m E 7093251.01 m S. Used to be called Vic's Viking Garage (might well still be?) - and had a Vickers Viking on top when I first arrived here in the 1980's, which was traded to SAA in exchange for the present SAAF Shackleton.

The Viking looks sad.
