Due to the lack of receivers between Maseru and PE so any aircraft tracked via MLAT are not tracked in that area, FR24 loses them near Maseru and when they are picked up again on the return flight it assumes it is still a continuation of the earlier flight. The Mango flight departed Joburg at 05:15 and arrived in PE just before 7 and departed there at 07:36 and arrived back in Joburg just after 9.

RVR is sitting at 450 meters so Cat II minima. With George closed I would guess ORT is the alternate. Although they should be able to land in that. Maybe a little low on fuel to hang around to long

Guys, it's a Sunday evening. Put down the laptop / phone, there has to be something more interesting than staring at flight radar.
This thread always makes me a little sad, no one's social life can be that empty.
