What happens at an aircraft Fly-In Lunch?
Our restaurant became a ‘plane-spotting’ hub for a day
Twelve airplanes joined us for lunch at the Black Oystercatcher on Saturday (17 March). They were members of the Stellenbosch Flying Club. We partnered with the club to host a Black Oystercatcher Fly-In Lunch. Our runway was filled with Savannahs, Jora aircraft and RV’s. The planes landed right in front of the restaurant, with patrons able to watch the pilots land and take off again a few hours later. Read more
