The big shots must be in the Eastern Cape. Not sure what types of aircraft.
Where is PY-BFY from?
P4-BFY is registered in Aruba, but based in Luanda with BestFly Angola. Sistership P4-BFL a G450 is due into ELS in the next 15-20mins

Both spend a lot of time in SA flying for SAAF, but BFY have also spend time in CPT lately for Antarctica flights.

I see Ramaphosa has been spotted in EL... Perhaps some high level talks/deals are under way...

EDIT: I hear the first NEC meeting is taking place in EL so most likely from some ANC heavyweights :roll:

P4-BFY was operating as South African 2 (Cyril) from Waterkloof to Durban on Sunday then went down to East London and on to Cape Town before doing an Antarctica trip yesterday. It has been Zumas ride on many overseas trips in the last year.
