Vintage biplanes land a Pyramids as part of Crete-to-Cape rally

Vintage biplanes land a Pyramids as part of Crete-to-Cape rally. As we noted earlier this week, the 10 or so vintage 1920s- and 1930s-era aircraft are flying nearly 13,000 kilometers to Cape Town. According to photo captions on a gallery by Arabian Business, at least one pilot is Egyptian, identified as Yasser Menaissy at the stick of a Stampe OO-GWB (above, our photo of the day). The Telegraph has a handful of additional photos, while has a video report (watch, run time: 1:28). Depending on who you believe, it’s the first time in 50 or 80 years that aircraft have been cleared to land at the Pyramids.
