Who doesn’t love flying a long haul all the way down to the Cape of Good Hope! Thank you Misha for an amazing FNF!
…and an even better trivia question!! Cute people think that Johannesburg is one of the capital cities in SA!

I feel like South Africa is so unique because I feel like they have 3 capitals

Hopefully and I can catch my flight early, and fly somewhere around in Africa

Can’t wait to control!

I’m so happy my Home country is on FNF.

Very nice FNF! I like flying in South Africa!

How these events work , sorry I am new to the game ???

It’s a little fun and interesting airport. I flew out of Madagascar during a sunset so it was probably nice orange than it will be for you! 😛

Great FNF Misha, I’m fond of Johannesburg in many ways, the airport’s layout and scenery is just oddly eye catching… I always love a 03R approach and landing

Johannesburg as our hub once again! Can’t wait! Thanks for sharing @MishaCamp 😎✈️

The real question is:

Can we consider the greater Pretoria area (the executive capital of South Africa) as Johannesburg? 🤔🤔

By that measure, the answer is no, Johannesburg is not one of the three capitals of South Africa

This is an awesome FNF! I’m planning on going to Cape Town and Johannesburg this year if things clear up. Got some family over there. Awesome to fly somewhere that I may be going to! Thanks for the diverse FNF, Misha!

I love long hauls over africa, such an exotic place
