The Gods Must be Crazy II

Guest Ed Guest

No, this is not a religious post. I just watched the movie "The Gods Must Be Crazy II" on DVD and there is a really cool little ultralight aircraft in it which figures in the story quite a bit.

It's a twin engine, high wing, two-seater with an exclosed cockpit, and an inverted V tail. Very strange looking little plane. I could tell you a few more things about it, but not without giving plot spoilers.

The only marking on it was "VEV" on the tail-- I assume that was its tail number. Anybody seen that movie and call tell me what the aircraft is?

BTW, if you've never seen the original "The Gods Must Be Crazy" it is quite a hoot. Both movies had me laughing out loud.

Thanks,

Ed

I watched the video a few years back and thought it was quit good.I'm not to sure what the aircraft was but I can say that "VEV" is not it's reg no. because an aircraft in South Africa or Zimbabwe normaly flyies with registration no. starting with ZA [e.g. ZA -1123].

P.S: was it this type of Ultralight [just this one is without an enclosed cockpit]

You know, it's pretty bad when you have to start a post with "This is NOT a religious post". There's no paranoia about having anything to do with God around here is there?

No paranoia but this is a Flight Sim board made for the discussion of flight.
We (most of us) use the sim and come here to escape the world around us, religion, politics etc.
If you check out the simple general rules of the forum you'd see what I mean.
If arguments or discussions other than flight "break" out then this wouldn't be the enjoyable place it has been.
The net is overrun with "discussion" forums.

JVD has a pic of it above. A B35 has a tail that's like a "V" not upsidedown.

JVD,

Yes, I believe that's it, except that one in the movie had a two seat side-by-side cockpit with gull-wing doors. So what is it? Where did you find that?

Thanks,

Yep. Who knew an airplane would run on scotch whisky? 😂
