Friends from Zambia - AF1001 and AF1003 Hongdu L-15 Falcon - a secret project it seemed, the Zambian pilot at least 'couldn't' answer any on my questions :scratchhead:

The second sexiest Cessna out there, N613CL Cessna 680A Citation Latitude, shame someone dumped his taxi in front :kissmyass:

That KC-135 has nothing left in front nor on the overhead resembling a 707.....Yet the over head looks ancient compared to a 707 overhead panel.

Lovely pan shot of all the SAAF fighters :champion: I wonder why the Zambian pilot couldn't tell you you anything about their secret aerie :wrench:

And look at that incredibly beauteous wing tip on the Latitude - and yes the bloody Fiat Uno parked in front of the machine really detracts from the whole effect :haha:

GD, nice that you got to see some stuff flying :thumbsup1: :yeeha:

Thanks for the comments guys, appreciated :highfive:

RA-89053 Sukhoi Superjet 100-95B VIP was parked behind fence
ImageRA-89053_09Sep16-FAWK by Aviation Adventures South Africa, on Flickr

Photography was a little easier inside - not much Russian airline over this VIP layout
ImageRA-89053_09Sep16-FAWK-cabin by Aviation Adventures South Africa, on Flickr

Even the cockpit lost the metallic green typical of Russian aircraft

First Boeing 747-8(BBJ) visitor to RSA as far as I am aware. A7-HHE of Qatar Emiri Flight came into Waterkloof in the dark yesterday evening. Here as seen earlier today from a vantage point far away. Also A7-AFE Airbus A310 also of Qatar Emiri Flight was parked, but even worse for a photo.

Parked at FAWK? But I saw it last night parked on Delta something at FAOR?

Came into WK yesterday afternoon for a drop off and then to ORT after dark. This morning it went back to WK. No clue why :scratchhead:

Here seen above the house on departure from WK to ORT yesterday evening.

The Qatari head of State is visiting. Much controversy re the visit as the main munt apparently pee-ed them off changing a dinner or something. The main munt was scared he'd be embarrassed due to protest action in Clitoria today.

Well there you go, Kompos summed it up for us :haha: :haha:

GD, great long distance shot and the night shot is pretty damn good seeing that it is at night :yikes: But yes, I think you are correct that its a first B748 BBJ for SA :champion: :champion:
