World Cup 2010 South Africa Old And New Aircrafts?

Wed Apr 11, 2007 7:00 am

So will South Africa be a spotters dream in 2010 with all aircrafts coming there?
Will B741s from Iran be parked next to A380s, Tristars from Congo-Kinshasa next to B787s?
Any secondary airports in South Africa that will take international flights with B727s, B741s, Tristars and Il-62s?
From New Yorqatar to Califarbia...

I never actually thought about the opportunity for spotting at 2010 until you just mentioned it, while probably not quite as diverse as you thought of, I'm sure any spotter would be more than pleased with the possibilities.

With the continued increase from Asia and possibly the US (we really hope) into football/soccer, I am thinking Cup 2010 will be the place to be; both at the airport and in the stadiums.
