From Thailand: PHUKET AIRSHOW & FLY-IN BIKINI COMPETITION

"In what may well have been a 'world first', Land Rover won widespread acclaim when one of its vehicles tore down the grass-strip runway faster than a Zenair plane flying roughly ten meters above it. The event also had an exciting appearance of 14 bikini-clad competitors for the title of Miss Phuket Airpark."

This is the very plane that started all this for us. It was parked in side a shopping centre in Bangkok. We stopped by and met Jim Matonti who owned the plane at that time. I eventually flew this plane with Jim Matonti, then bought the kit!

I don't know what the link with LandRover is, but there's a history there:
