Cyril was lying to us again.” One tweep says, “Can I just tell you guys that I saw a British Airways 747 Boening passing by to land at OR Tambo around 10:05am. I stay 30km away from the airport and I can confirm that I have seen more than one international aircraft flying [past] here.” One tweep says, “So a flight from Italy landed at OR Tambo International Airport at 08:44 and a flight from Germany will land at 09:00…We are in trouble here.”
