02OCT20 / 0600Z - Friday Night Flight: Connecting Southern Africa @ FAOR


This week we are heading to southern Africa, using airports that have either never been featured in a Friday Night Flight, or have had very limited coverage in the past on the ATC schedule! These airports range from airports in Zimbabwe to the Madagascan island, from the Tanzanian Archipelago to the vast expanses of Chad, and from the infamous island of St Helena to the Namibian hub of Windhoek.

We’ll have Johannesburg as our hub, an airport capable of catering to huge amounts of traffic. No other airports in South Africa will be open during this event. Routes are flown by a number of airlines, with the most common being that of South African, but also operated by a number of smaller airlines and charters.

Boiling an egg in Johannesburg takes one minute longer than in London. Why is this?

  • They have bigger eggs
  • The water takes longer to boil due to its mineral composition
  • Due to the latitudinal position south of the equator
  • Johannesburg is 2000ft higher than London

There was one a few weeks ago I am pretty sure. In Algeria I think.

Algeria but I’ve never seen a FNF or IFATC schedule for e.g. Chad, Namibia, Zimbabwe or Zambia

Perfect. Just to let you know that they haven’t neglected the continent of Africa.

Nice FNF as always Misha!

Nice to see Africa featuring in FNF again. Let’s try to spread out, there are some nice airports featured there such as Victoria Falls and Zanzibar etc.

Ps. Interesting poll Misha 😉

The Algeria FNF was nearly half a year ago, the continent of Africa is kinda neglected don’t lie

I’m giving Misha credit for this one tho, I love flying in Africa so I really like this FNF, especially the other airports featured 🤤🤤🤤

Pretty sure that the lower air pressure at Johannesburg would lead to water boiling at a lower temperature and hence reaching the boiling point earlier. I’m more inclined to say mineral/salt composition would affect the boiling point more. Unless someone else has another point of view to explain the longer cook times for boiled eggs.

Wonderful choice @MishaCamp, I think it’s the first FNF event using the main FAOR comp HUB since I downloaded the IF.

This will be an awesome one to control! Thanks, Misha!

Catch me piloting that Delta A350 to Atlanta.
