Check the logo on the Tail. Looks like the Weatherssa logo. Should explain the pods and the nose...

Weather SA have two Commanders, ZS-JRA and ZS-JRB. Both are used for Cloud Seeding (Try and make it rain). JRA is currently in Aus cloud Seeding. And I think Bravo has been commissioned to do pollution patrol on the highveld.

sadly not, but bumped into the ferry pilot (a good friend of mine) in Ondangwa on the ferry over, whilst we were coming back from Gabon...showed some pictures...looked rather interesting!

More ZS-MNT images. This aircraft once belonged to Lee Iacocca and is an early version but Stage III compliant and able to operate into European airports. It has been bought by Medair. Very nice indeed :D
