Falcon 900EX N719SH

Flew Durban, PMB, JHB

Came to JHB from Riyad Saudi Arabia couple days before and then to Durban before the race

Its been operating from JHB to CPT, various African countries, The Middle East and Japan for months, with a stint in the USA for a while before returning

There are pictures of her landing in JHB as far back as 2021
Thank you, Snitch.

Nice transport for someone after they had to use their legs to get from Durbs
It belongs to the Cochranes of Clearvu fence fame... They used to own ZS-CVU LJ45.

I am flying on Qatar QR 256 to Larnaca shortly, and was having a look at this flight-number's history for fun ..... I see on FR24 that 9 of the last 9 flights have diverted to Beirut, with only 2 of them forwarding to Larnaca ..... is this a glitch in the system, or what ? ... I would rather get to Larnaca than Beirut any day.

Hope someone can enlighten me here, Ta
Hi Charles
I do this flight every 4 weeks it arrives in larnaca
The issue seems to be with the gps
The last flight out of larnaca was delayed by over
An hour due to the gps not working
The pilot said due to the conflict in nearby Israel
Is causing the issue
I have heard from a few people leaving larnaca
On other airlines with the same issue

When you try and use the navigation app WAZE
On the iPhone it showes your phone is in Beirut
And not Cyprus
I am sure this is the same issue the airlines are having

Regards
Indeed a lot of GPS jamming reports from that area, have a look here, very interesting: https://gpsjam.org/?lat=33.91656&lon=38 ... 2024-06-12
