    Why would the ANC not survive this? Take a look at the voting stats, the areas where the ANC has treated its citizens the worst is where they win the most support.

    That is the truth

    There is a Grippen at Waterkloof AFB at the moment providing background noise to my Skype meetings.

    Not a bad sight, can see it taking off every now and then.

    The Gripen squad (possibly only one in circles!) is over Centurion today. Seems someone in Klerksdorp has been smoking.

    I think it is just one. From where I sit and work in the dining room, I can see it coming in to land. Almost sure it's just one.

    Some people complain, but I actually enjoy the sound.

    Just got these from a source. Obviously can't verify any of it at this stage.

    The military shots could be from military expos, shows and joint exercises.

    But I think this was the source for my initial post.

    apart from that, several Chinese Navy ships in CT harbour would have been picked up by lots of people. I mean, the Kaapies are doff but they're not blind as well..........
