Ok, lets try this one again.  The previous posting got deleted because, I suppose, not enough Orbx scenery was showing.

This flight is the very last QANTAS Boeing 747 flight out of Johannesburg, on Thursday, 26th, March, 2020.

On Saturday, 28th March, 2020, All Qantas 747's were retired immediately.

Fantastic light is these (historic?) shots. Makes me remember how long the lifespan of the 747 "Longreach" is.


Your Joburg does not look too good, but at least it works. I still won´t buy any of those on the market.

Yep, it is old, I got it for FSX years ago, and then a free update came out for P3Dv4, so I tried it out.

I'm to, waiting for something decent for Johannesburg, don't know if I'll live long enough to see that !

My FSDG Cape Town is OK, but it could do with some modernization.
