My wife took this snap with her new Nikon Coolpix camera, quite by chance, of Nelson Mandela's last flight to Qunu, flanked by two Gripen fighters, as the C130 carrying his coffin flew over our house in Pretoria East just after taking off from Waterkloof Airbase. It also captures the moment of the sadness I felt at seeing this great peacemaker leave us for ever.
