Sky watchers and plane spotters had a treat this morning (Tues)

A South African Airlines flight made land fall right over Southland after a direct and long  flight from Johannesburg South Africa.

The flight, possibly the first direct flight from South Africa to Christchurch was bringing kiwi’s home from  South Africa.

The flight SA2984 from Or Tambo International Airport took 12 hours 42 minutes flying time.
