Re: OR Tambo Airport Security Warning

Welcome to Tombstone Gulch, er, sorry, ORT.

The only difference between the USA citizens and the RSA citizens, is the USA citizens are used to the Colt .45 while here in the RSA we are used to the AK-47.

Re: Airlink ORT to PMB return (Inbound Leg)

In the early to mid-90's I was involved in a project that was rolling out new software in the coastal ports DBN-ELS-PLZ and CPT.

Nothing more ugly than a broken aircraft. Anyone able to walk away from an aircraft accident, needs to report to the nearest bar for a Bells.
