They were about 15 minutes ahead of us. When I heard them battling the storms I slowed the airplane down to M.072. At first we decided to hold over OKPIT but that weather was moving from the airport to OKPIT, so we decided to go around it and hold at STV and have a look from there. As we left OKPIT the BA flight diverted to FALE. Weather at FALE also deteriorated, LVP's in force, vis 2000 meters and ceiling at 200'. Great evening for flying. :um:

Seems they are struggling again today. Etihad heading towards Durban and other had a couple goes landing with no joy. Always entertaining to watch on FR24 :scratchhead:

ZS-JRI Boeing 737-300 returned to JNB this morning - presume it was FA101 to CPT. All they got was an 1 hour scenic flight above Soweto.

The Antanov made a b-line for Jhb. Was one of the very first to land post the storm.

I like the logo on the AN12's tail - wishful thinking, perhaps?

Interesting to see deepest Africa is the darkest. Reading history books the pattern above was the same throughout history. More activity on the coast and less or nothing inside. The people from the coastal areas raided the central areas and took the people from the central areas to the coast where the central guys were sold as slaves. The more things change the more they stay the same.
