Almost a quiet day at JOMAC

On Thursday I had arranged to meet Kelvin Reynolds at JOMAC for some relaxed flying.

I drove out along William Nicol, not much traffic, slightly overcast with a gentle breeze, perfect.

This desirable state of affairs lasted until the Dainfern turn-off. There, Metro Police were blocking all traffic along the R511 in the direction of the field. I turned around and came home.

The seven o'clock E News told the rest of the tale.

In Diepsloot members of two Taxi Associations had exchanged fire. In the melee shots struck passing motorists. A lorry hit a Metro Police office killing him. Metro Police arrested several men after a skirmish on the veld.

From some points of view we do live in desperate times.
