Weather diversions?

Both Comical Airways and Scareways going to Durban via Ermelo! Must be a storm in the Standerton area. The Scareways went even further east.

Maybe they have issued overflying restrictions for Nkandla now and all are expected to stay far away  :burner: :burner: :kissmyass: :kissmyass:

Just for interest Raffles, have you tried the weather overlay option on the web version of FR24? Often can be a good indication of inclement weather.

That satellite photo was only an hour before and it puzzles me why they went east, the Comical Airways flight from Lanseria went almost on the regular track (it is also on the radar without a label though, parallel to CAW625 to the west). It landed shortly after 625, before the Scareways scarebus.
