Where was the freight offloaded? FAWK or ORTIA?
Why not land at ORTIA innthe 1st place? Why went to FAWK which is another 10minutes flying time while enroute.? There are too many holes to plug

Also not compliant to the Gazette on international travel as Waterkloof is not listed as a port of entry for cargo
Airports are where it happens

Strange movement of AC.
Why would the AC land at FAWK @ 01:54 and then depart a few hours later @ 06:15 routing FAWK-ORTIA
Normal ops or something funny going on.
Original departure was from Kuala Lumpur.
She did
Luxemburg-Leipzig-Waterkloof-Johannesburg-Kuala Lumpur-Waterkloof-Johannesburg and now on way back to Luxemburg
All between 12 and 15 October

I'm pretty sure I saw a global 6000 parked outside the international terminal at FALA on Tuesday.... ( I was looking from the Southside though)
