    That's "bad" man......

    I got to ride in a JN-4 Jenny years ago. Indicated speed in mph, T/O-65, battle speed 65, landing 65! It was brilliant.

    Very nice to see, aeroplane is de Havilland D.H.104 Dove ZS-BCC formerly of South African Airways. Google is your friend (and is spying on you).
