"Tas kas mani izbrinija, bija tas, ka turpcela Cukurs avareja apmetot lidmasinu riteniem gaisa nesabojajot to, cita epizode vinam gaisa faktiski saluza motos (saliecot klokvarpstas utt.). Vairakas reizes motors principa parstaja darboties. Nomainitais motors ari bija defektivs. Atpakalcela vins bija pastavigi te slims ar neizskaidrotu drudzi, malariju, te vesels, te atkal slims, te vesels. Vairakas piespiedu nolaisanas, negaisi, smilsu vetras, apmaldisanas tuksnesi, virs purviem, bet degvielas maz utt. Citiem vardiem sakot ir pilnigi neticami, ka vins atgriezas Latvija ar veselu adu un savu lidmasinu C3. Pinigi neticami..." ( Arnis Janovs)
