Project Description

In 1987 while flying a combat mission for the South African Air Force over the Mavinga region of Southern Angola, Arthur Piercy’s Mirage F1CZ fighter was damaged by a missile fired from a Mig 23 fighter flown by a Cuban pilot, Major Alberto Ley Rivas. The accident left Arthur a quadriplegic – and it took a seven- month stay in 1 Military Hospital before he was successfully rehabilitated. For Arthur, life would never be the same. Make Arthur’s dream come true.
