REALLY ZS-RSA returns to the sky

After a hiatus of about two years “Inkwazi”, the South African Presidential Jet, returned to the skies yesterday.
In what appears to be a test flight the 737- 700 BBJ departed from Air Force Base Waterkloof yesterday 12:00UTC ZS-RSA flew to Durban then on to Cape Town, from Cape Town it flew to Upington and finally landed back at AFB Waterkloof some four hours and twenty-four minutes later. This morning at just before 09:00UTC the BBJ once again got airborne and spent just over an hour doing circuits at Waterkloof. Hopefully this signals the return of “Inkwazi” to active service.

With the current financial "problem" surrounding the current government, there will be no more talk of a bigger and better VIP aircraft any more, I hope.
