Anybody know what the Globemaster that looked like it was going to Lanseria is doing here?
Saw it approaching Krugersdorp from the North and then it turned east towards FALA

Nope, From my point of view is that there is a lot activity from the Saudi Arabia lately to RSA. 6 Weeks ago there were 2 x Gulfstream inbound on a Sunday morning arriving at FAOR parking at Denel. Sunday, 4th of July 2021 there were a BBJ, also from Saudi Arabia Airforce bound to FAOR. Just speculation going on and let a person wonder what this is all about. Denel Missiles, armor secrets etc. Just my 5c info on this topic.....!

I was referring to the USAF C-17, not the Saudi aircraft.
