Just a reminder as to what Boepie looks like from behind and masterfully feathering with a light touch on the controls of a B732 :clap:

The 727 was covering our route as we were waiting for TGG to come onto the AOC. TGG is flying tonight, JNB-PLZ-CPT, first flight for this airplane with Star Air :thumbs:

Thanks GD. I have submitted the hex code aircraft details to FR24 for ZS-TGG last week already but still not showing up correctly on their system. Nice to see that TGG actually "exists" :champion:
