Nice to have the radar box, you can identify everything


Hindsight is what you see from the tail gunner's position. :D

Not technically "Seen at FAOR", but nonetheless, Raffles accompanied Moertoe and Boepie to Ndola today. Here are a couple of screenshots from RadarBox of their return to Jo'burg this afternoon. They were flying in ZS-SIH. Hope you enjoyed it Raffles?

Since this is the seen at OPTIA thread, I will don another thread for the actual flight.

What about a snap shot of the 'Moertoe'-Captain in his uniform next to his aerie??  :ok: :tongue:

I have spent many hours in ZS-SIH on the coastal route DUR-PLZ-CPt with Capt. Terry Jones at the front end and me on the jump seat.


Still trying to catch the gravy train.

Been waiting a while to capture something like this with the Moon in the shot. Missed it last week as the aerie passed even closer to a fuller Moon. But anyway, seen overhead FAOR this morning at 10:09. Emirates UAE772 A6-ERN A343 OMDB - FACT Fl360 405Kts making some nice contrails for us with the colder temperatures here today  :cheers: :cheers:

It helps to have an IS lens to stop the shaking about.
