Lovely.

At what height is the ORT traffic over your stoep, GD?

This was on unusual approach, guessing 300-400 feet. Most WK traffic I don't see.

Well Gooney, you are quite correct about the Chocking Proteas. Really is bewildering. But hey, your view certainly makes up for that. Very nice indeed :champion:

That beats cricket at the best of times, a view we can only dream of in GP :thumbsup1:
Looks like Jackie enjoys the view of the boss more that the sea though :haha:

After making some noise above the southeastern bits of Pretoria #267 Hawk Mk120 made the right call and came downwind to RWY19 east of the runway so I could see if from the house.

A little far for quality but first time I caught #267 with the Gannet tail. Aircraft was painted in 2012 to mark 45 yrs of 85 CFS (formerly known as Advanced Flying School).
