After having passed many times in car en-route Kgalagadi/West Coast/Namibia I finally had my first Upington airport visit yesterday, in less that brilliant weather.

Found the five 727s that have been stored there for the last 10-15 years.

Yesterday is history.
Tomorrow is a mystery.
But today is a gift.
That's why it's called the present.

Air Cargo Global 747 OM-ACG landed last night from Hannover, not sure why she’s there or when she’s leaving.

I once saw one of these 747s landing @ UP. Was quite a sight. She was there for about 3 days if i remember correctly. They also loaded the cars at night to dodge all the sneaky cameras. On takeoff, telling by the dust cloud, you could see UP doesn't get these kind of thrust very often.
