Free State had severe sandstorms. Africa Aviation has very good footage of the storm in Bloemfontein and specifically Tempe.

Yip its chaos here in Jo'burg. Sandstorm first and now the rain. Aircraft asking for higher speeds on the approach and then calling for going around.

The joy of flying night freight into JNB, usually CAVOK. CPT and PE are a different story at this time of the year.

Yesterday was great here and now we are getting proper rain again.

If 5 years ago you would have told me that one day I would enjoy rain, I would've laughed, and now here we are :gooneybird:
