Just guessing with these, but I would think that most of these 00D.../00E.../00F... codes during local flights in that area are SAAF PC-7's. Sure there could be an RV or two between but 159kts should rule out your Jabis and Slings at least.

Another one now, 320kts rules out a most types.

Very interesting catch this morning.... Not one, but TWO Falcon 7X's inbound through Nam airspace, almost looks like the one is following the other. One at FL410 and the other at FL450....

Perhaps 2 of VW's machines going to Upington???

I don't think I'm wrong on the VW/Audi connection... Both airplanes originate just south of Ingolstadt...

Ah I see what you are referring to. Yes, don't the Audi / VW blokes do annual testing at their track they have in the desert there?

And to confirm your correctness with the VW connection, have a look just behind them is the VW Airbus A319 inbound as well. Good catch 87J :good:

Rumors were they were looking to seek asylum in a country less fanatic about emissions, seem South Africa was the choice :funny:

Some didn't come though, still another 2 Falcon 7Xs, 4 Falcon 900s and a Falcon 2000 in the fleet. Callsign Worldgate :yikes:

It must be a tough day at the office when you have to decide on only taking 2 aeries out of your whole fleet of Falcon types :thinking:

On ground at FAUP
VP-CVX Airbus A319-133X (CJ) - VW Air Services
VP-CUH Dassault Falcon 7X - VW Air Services
VP-CSW Dassault Falcon 7X - VW Air Services

Something like this happens a good couple times a year. I don't think you will necessarily find the top CEOs, but rather top engineers/designers. Some of these people are not allowed to travel on the same aircraft (in case they loose one).

Reliable source tells me that also VP-CSG 7X VW is at FAUP so three 7Xs and the Airbus.
