I saw the Scarebus leaving Uppington this morning at around 02:00. FR24 didn't show the destination....

I'm usually up until about 02:30....one gets used to that when you're semi retired/bored.

Some more "Secret Stuff" heading to Upington possibly? :thinking:

With a flight number like GTI maybe they are bringing in a whole bunch of Golf GTi's for testing :haha: :haha:

You should see where they came from before departing JNB. Atlas Air is a big US freighter airline, callsign is "Giant".

Came in from Brasilia this morning, so that would suggest a charter. Not sure where it going.

Two interesting flights on FR24 this morning:

This Hawker4000 following an odd routing down south...

and then this G650 inbound from Amman, Jordan...

Looks like the G650 is going over the top... Still at FL430 and just about at Harties...

It's just done a kink to the right so looks like a destination of FACT? It's probably heading your way 87J.

Don't you have to test drive a new Audi out the airport way (to confirm the registration of the G6) :thinking:

It will be interesting to see where he does end up but it's looking like FACT. But cruising up at Fl430 he can "glide" the last bit to make it to Cape Town :good:

Naaaas indeed. It's not very orften that you see a RED trail line on FR24 when an aerie is that high. It's usually the dark blue lines only :good:
