Its a leased aircraft and the dots indicates hail damage prior to the lease, so I have heard

Tomorrow is a mystery.
But today is a gift.

I'm heading down to Durban for the weekend with my kids. I'd like to visit Virginia with them and take some photos. Is there any special rules I should know about? Do I need to call/contact someone for access?

Just saw this, our aircraft get marked similarly to this when temporary rivet maintenance has been done after lightning damage.

You lot down at the coast are pathetic! Five months of silence (are you even still there?) and the last pictures taken had to be posted by...an upcountry photographer! Shame on you all! :P :P
