FACT and IFATC.

The amount of times I’ve mispelt it.

‘IFACT’. Do it like every time.

Congratulations all controllers wherever you’ve controlled today, though!

The ATCs are like God ! They’re so amazing to control all the aircraft fly-in and out. But now the airport is super busy and you might take some time to get in or find a parking space.

I want to shoutout @Prashant_Divedi who was doing approach when I was landing in Cape Town a little over an hour ago. Handled the traffic like a professional and gave me an excellent tour of the coastline. Thanks for everything, and thanks to all the other IFATC who did Cape Town today!

Also I forget who was doing Tower at the time, but I misjudged my speed with one of the taxiways and ended up staying on the runway to the end which took much longer. With a plane lined up and another on final I apologize I took so long! I know it can be annoying when you need traffic off the runway ASAP.

I believe It was @Will_A ?

It was me. No problem, I got the departure out on time.

Ah, was thinking it was. I just shot down the runway as fast as I could after. Thanks again for Tower!

@NJ24 @Guxk and @PlaneGeek on approach kept things moving nicely. I will say that extended approach is even nicer when the scenery looks the way it did. 😃
