Funny to hear all my pals on the radio going "ehhh" today. Warren, Dylan and Mark were flying and later I got Igor with a "ehh" too. ATC hates the "ehh" sound and still don't know who's doing it. I'll try to record some of the ATC recordings during the nigh freight. Anyway, off to bed, got hop on the freighter again tonight. Ya'll have a great day :thumbs:

I think you are correct which means some drivers were keeping some land lubbers awake possibly :thinking:

Thought I would add to this thread as it hasn't been posted in for a while. My bags are packed for a trip to Nelspruit tomorrow for work. Will be overnighting and then back on Friday. Sparrows Fart it shall be out of ORT on the 7am flight.

But as GD has pointed out to me, a trip report is expected. Now I see what it's like being on the other side of the fence for a change and also I'll be flying fixed-wing :yikes:

Yes, getting in and out of KMIA is very "interesting" between the koppies, I find. :wacko:

It's so nice to be thought of guys. Yes KMI is my first landing. We did an overhead the field with right hand downwind for 05. Them mountains are quite large.

Have some really nice pics which I'll post later tonight for the inbound leg.

Evening All,

Well then, today was a good day. Firstly, it was a day off to make it a nice long weekend and secondly, I got the house connected up to WiruLink.

For R799 pm we get a 5Mb line with 375Gb and no caps. Working nicely on my MacBook this evening and it's quite quick indeed. Desktop PC is connected by ethernet to the router whilst all other mobile devices are connected via wifi.

Looking good so far :good:

Not quite lekker slaap yet :cool2:

Anyway off to Tulbach for a long weekend, so will be heading down to CPT tomorrow on BA6409. Was looking forward to make some British Airways 737-800 winglet pics, but unfortunately it seems ZS-ZWH is planed, and that apparently now have all white winglets without BA markinga after it was upgraded with scimitars in February. Somewhat annoying as that was the only reason I booked on BA :furious:

So here is hoping for a plane change for once, something I usually fear :haha:
