Südafrika wir kommen - unsere Anreise nach Südafrika von Frankfurt nach Kapstadt mit South African Airways + Blick ins Cockpit! Am 20.11.2016 ging es für uns von Frankfurt über Johannesburg nach Kapstadt. Die Anreise war lang, denn es ging um 15:00 Uhr zum Frankfurter Flughafen und am folgenden Tag um 13:00 Uhr (+ eine Stunde Zeitverschiebung) landeten wir erst in Kapstadt. Etliche Kilometer und 2 geniale Flüge mit South African Airways lagen hinter uns. Es folgte noch der Weg zu unserer wirklich tollen Airbnb Unterkunft, ein großer Moment des Schreckens und nachdem uns auch der Abschied von unseren Lieben in Deutschland so schwer gefallen war, fielen wir am Abend total müde ins Bett! Den Blogbeitrag zur Anreise und den ersten Tagen in Südafrika findest du hier: http://life-to-go.com/an...

This video shows a flight simulator version of the AI Traffic operating at Cape Town International airport in South Africa. As always, in preparation for these type of videos, I do a little research based on current information available from Wikipedia, and videos about flight spotting at that particular airport. I download flightplans for all carriers serving that airport from the Alpha India Group (AIG) and Avsim. The scenery I am using here is available at Avsim. Just google for Cape Town International airport. The music is freeware from YouTube's music library. Enjoy!
