Hi Joe! We're trying to find out if you're on duty at BGW. We're doing some RJA flying from AMM to BGW. Coming in in about 2 hours as RJA814.

Damn, think we missed you. There is another boertjie in the TWR, just ask for Andre. I'm over at the academy, doing some teaching. Unless you do a night stop, we will not be able to get to you.

On the way out I got a vectored departure. Took me right over the city, I guess it's safe there now?

All the departures are subject to wherever the perceived threat area may be, based on intel received from the military liason people. You will always therefore get the safest route out. Having said that, we have had instances (twice in 4 years) of rockets crossing the arrival/departure paths without warning....so anything is possible really. Now that ISIS has dispersed among the population...who knows ? We watch with bated breath. By the way, remember the FDB that took a hit from a bullet? well that was from a party celebrating a football win over Iran I think. Hulle skiet mos in die lug in as daar iets is om te 'celebrate'.... mal donners :um:

I guess the safest practice is still to come in/depart with all our lights off at night?
