Its still at Rand... and one does wonder why :?
Surely the Angolan Air Force has the $$ to pay the bills
Thanks Bearcat :smt023 . I think either they don't have the $$ or something fishy is going on there :-k . A military aircraft sitting at a civilian airport for over a year...one does wonder. How much are the daily landing fees at Rand?
Think of the bill its racked up [-(

Perhaps ... or it could be as simple as the local AN-32 operator having bought it from the Angolans.
