Thanks Erik. Most admit I like South Africa!! As in Bolivia many quality aircraft (actually even more here) and besides that all the regular European/Asian stuff.

New house is just a couple of km from Waterkloof AFB, there is a ridge in between though so don't see everything if they are coming in from the wrong direction. But love the terrace, on good days a lot of Jo'burg traffic will come straight over at anything between 4-9000ft AGL.

The inbound IL76s are actually not very noisy and the ridge takes most of the take-off sound (unfortunately according to me, luckily according to my wife). B737-200s thundering out of JNB heading north come over at 6-7000ft, they can be heard :mrgreen:
