The airplane has been sitting there for a while now. The last time I saw them leaving was the same day we went to Point Noire (caught them at duty free they were going ape manure buying stuff/booze). I'm not sure if they have flown out since. I just took this picture at my usual smoking spot next to the security shack on the Foxtrot Apron in Cape Town last night.

Late last year I was privileged to see Moertoe's security shack where he takes a smoke. And a couple of aircraft as well.

Thanks MS.
