IJB is being flown to the US where it hopefully will be sold ASAP. This airplane has drained the company, it hardly flew.....Good riddance!

There certainly is some good coverage on FR24 for the southern Africa region. Just checked out Emirates 773 bombing over the house at FL360 heading for FACT.

If I was still in the k@kplaas I would set up one there as there is no coverage in that area.

However I am not there so can't help right now.

The weather is always worse than they broadcast on ATIS or METAR. SCT004 was probably SCT001....ELS is the same manure.... :Don't Like:

Interesting visitor to ORT today with B77L CS-TQX. Nice aircraft. Must be the "No.1" from Equatorial Guinea :thinking:

Thanks for the Flightradar24 "app" on the portal page, I like it, KEEP IT!

Interesting catch down in the Eastern Cape 5 minutes ago.... Check it!

With possible SAAF stuff, GD is usually the one to call on for help with this :good:
