Thanks! I would normally never have considered going in that kind of weather, but luckily there was an Iranian Government Boeing 707 due :cool2:

Dropping some guests off at the airport this morning - so made a couple pics

And noted this unusual visitor - British Airways Boeing 777-300 G-STBH replacing the usual A380, already a lot of heathaze at 0900L

Great pics GD :dance:

Looks like BA heading the same way with their need for a replacement for the A380 using a B777 much like Air France has been doing of late :thinking:

Apparently G-XLEB was damaged in Washington a couple days earlier, so they were a A380 short. Sent the 777-300 as replacement and added an extra 777-200 flight for the surplus pax :yikes:

Only a 48 seat extra on the two 777s combined (although mostly premium seats). Seating configuration A380 F14,C97,W55,Y303 Combined 772 and 773 F27,C104,W76,Y310. for these BA aircraft.

Quick ORT visit to catch a heavenly Gulfstream III unfortunately with hush-kits. Registered to 'From the Heart Churches' and probably used by the Episcopal Pastor John A. Cherry :shock:

It did, this was around 1230L, went direction Hoedspruit? and returned relatively quickly before heading south to PE?
