From G.A.S.E's Facebook (edited):
" The Cape Town to Goodwood Flight, consisting of the Boeing Stearman and Cessna Grand Caravan (and 8 crew in total) finally departed October Airport, Cairo today. A hectic morning saw the G.A.S.E. crew pick up the team from the hotel, transport them to and through October Airport security to Hangar Badran where the aircraft were based. Some polite discussions between us and security allowed the documentary team to film interviews, shots of the aircraft on the ground and the all-important departure of the Stearman.
"Both aircraft had departed by early afternoon for Mersa Matruh on the Mediterranean coast; a change in plans because G.A.S.E. could re-fuel with avgas from bowser at this semi-military airport. This would save the crew handling charges and possibly hotel costs at El Alamein, which was their original destination. The CT2G gave a special mention to General Badran and his engineer, Alaa, as well as Eddie and Ahmed from G.A.S.E."
