Checking on the status of the Cape Town flight and noticed this.
Likely DME arc practice or part of an IF test.

MIAT (Mongolian) 738 arrived from Jeddah yesterday registration JU-1015. Surely one of the rarest things to arrive here?

Departing later this evening back to Jeddah. Any ideas why it is here? See its routing is JNB Jeddah Kolkata and then Ulaanbaatar
