Surely Fireblade should have been issuing the tickets, with names on & manifest, if the aircraft is on their AOC.
I get the impression that Execujet was doing a sub-charter for this flight and the aircraft is not on their AOC.?

There is no ‘tracker’ all they have done as many other bizjet operators worldwide is to ask some of the flight tracking websites to block their aircraft, although there are still a few who refuse to block anything .
It is still on the ground at Al Maktoum International in Dubai.

Around the 15th February 2018 "Bonnie Mad" mentioned that the Guptas arrived in Bloemfontein - and we assumed it was in their aircraft.
jvdl - then said he hoped it would be there the next day as he wanted to get a "shot" for his collection.

I seem to think that he had managed to get shots at a Springbok, a Kudu and a Gemsbok to date , so was curious to know if he managed to get a shot at it the next day ??

Sorry mods - off topic I guess ?

Unfortunately I never got the chance to visit the airport, so no photos from my side, sorry. :(

Johannesburg - The South Gauteng High Court ruled on Monday that a Bombadier Global 6000 aircraft the Gupta family was leasing must be handed over to the applicants and stored at Lanseria airport, in Johannesburg.

My bad ..... that it might have been discussed.... but given the courts decision.... why can't the applicants ask the court to ask/ compell the SACAA to de-register the aircraft?

Won't that ground it where ever / whatever jurisdiction it's currently in?
