BA747 to CPT

Unread post by Tailspin2001 » Fri May 22, 2020 11:54 pm

Good to see a BA747 on its way to CPT again! I suspect freight only like the daily JNB and it will most probably go straight back to LHR in the morning.

Any idea what this is? ZS-SEF just passed overhead. Is this some kind of survey?

Looks like the ExplorHEM electromagnetic survey system operated by Spectrem Air. Used to create maps of below-surface mineral deposits.

I'm not entirely certain it's ExplorHEM, but it's almost certainly an electromagnetic survey sensor.
