I have a few questions -

2. Are touch and goes at O.R. Tambo Airport allowed?

Due to the price increase in ammunition, do not expect a warning shot.

How do you miss the big ass runway right next to the taxiway? Did he think maybe the small one was for his small airplane?!? :twisted: :twisted:

Unless he planned to go there, how do even get to ORT by accident and did he even speak to atc? What would the repercusion be for doing something like this? Seeing that it takes so long to get atf, maybe he will only have to go for tea in about two years time :twisted:
