Sad news. He was a most interesting if not controversial man who had been ill for some time

Ladies and Gentlemen,

I knew that Kurt Dahlmann was suffering from heart attacks and other weakness in his body. Yet he lived a long life on Earth for 99 years. I was hopping that he would make 100 years but that isn't so. Those who fought during World War II are passing away one by one. Trying to make 100 years of living on Earth is still a rare thing. May Kurt Dahlmann find peace in Heaven!

I wonder if Kurt Dahlmann flew planes in South Africa even while as a journalist. Maybe carrying a gun for self protection.

Mr. Dahlman was able to fly a wee bit, but uncertain if his age/health permitted licenced piloting. A JG. 27 vet living there, who flew gliders had met him, and safely we can think they flew together. Mr. Eder did fly (unlicensed) during a visit there with his friend Ben, who shot him down decades before. Similarly, Mr. Rudorffer flew licensed in Australia, as did Mr. Schoenert in Canada. (a real Bush flyer). Mr. Thyben flew P-47's in Columbia, and dear Mr. Drewes flew in Brazil, first a FW weihe, which is preserved in a museum there.
Armed? most probably not.
