Not everyday that a Bonanza routes East out of Rand directly overhead my home considering that the flight path to the ORT localiser is 2 km to the West.
He would be on an IFR flight plan and therefore under radar control.

Quite sure he was but it's very seldom that I have any GA traffic overhead. The helicopters hue the N17 corridor daily.

If you don't gear up your brain before takeoff, you'll probably gear up your airplane on landing.
