Johannesburg is the largest city in South Africa, and former Dutch colony of British occupation. This city is located northeast of the country 60km from the capital Pretoria. Over many years the Europeans have made a Jo'bourg economic capital based somewhat on the English model, and therefore it is normal to find an aviation perspective important modern activity. The international airport is named OR Tambo a black politician in South Africa, the cause of militant anti-apartheid and African National Congress president, and is located northeast of the mega-city of 10million people. Johannesburg airport consists of two major terminals, one international and one domestic implanted recent west of two parallel runways. The 03L-21R are most often used for departures, while the 03R-21L are specialized in arrivals. Sometimes, however, when traffic is quieter than only the tracks closest to the terminal 03L-21R are used for all traffic. A cargo terminal located northwest hosts many flights daily interest. Finally north of the airport between the two tracks is a major business complex aircraft maintenance aircraft regularly draining all the more exotic colors as each other from across Africa. The national carrier South African Airways has established its impressive "hub" in this field, with connections from international to outline the various cities. British Airways also provides the system of "bub" with connections to medium-haul aircraft in collaboration with Comair, which operates aircraft painted in the livery of the national English. Various other companies are based in the Jo'bourg delivered with colorful Mango, Kulula, 1Time, Comair and South African Cargo. International lines are provided by many companies from Africa including Ethiopian, Air Kenya, Madagascar Airlines, TAAG, Air Botswana, Air Malawi, Mozambique LAM, or the world via Air France, Egyptair, Qatar, Emirates, Etihad, Swiss , Delta, Lufthansa and Virgin Atlantic. Viewpoint cargo, not exclusively serving large corporations but a mail traffic carried by many companies including Cargolux, Martinair, Southern Air, World Cargo, Qatar Cargo, Cargo and Ethiopian Avient.


Our trip to South Africa began at Brussels Airport May 24, 2012, we had chosen the company Egyptair which offered great prices on this destination. It was aboard the flight MS726 (SU-GBV A321) we left Brussels to Cairo, where we had our flight to Johannesburg by night flight MS839 (A330-200 SU-GCG). Upon our arrival at daybreak and after receipt of the rental car, the track management 03R was used for approach and the first photo under a sun that did not leave the room. May is one of the driest months, it's the end of autumn and the days are pleasant with 22 degrees for cooler nights, but the sunshine has allowed us to see the traffic from 7 am about 17h, which is enough to observe all the companies that serve the airport. The wind stayed north of the exception of one day, what are the 03 tracks that were mainly used during our stay. Once the shoot is complete, the hotel management to value for money called the "Life Aviator Hotel" located at the end of runway 21R for a well deserved rest, a good dinner and watch the planes take off from the room. We enjoyed our stay to visit national parks to animals whose pride of South Africa, but we have been repeatedly advised to stay at the hotel once darkness fell, insecurity is permanent in the streets of the first city in the world of crime. We met the local spotters, very happy to share valuable information and at no time have we been bothered by the police, Aboriginal residents. We spent an afternoon at the Observation Desk located on the floor of the international terminal, behind the windows to have the opportunity to make planes grounded with an interesting background and views on airport parking areas, taxiways and Runway 03L-21R

The return was made on May 31 aboard the flight MS840 (A330-200 SU-GCF) to Cairo and MS725 (A320 SU-GCC) to Brussels.


Without further ado I'll let you see the pictures of this wonderful journey, with aircraft in the colors much more cheerful than we're used to seeing in other parts of the world.
