South African Airlines Flight Passes Over Southland On Long Flight Home.

Skywatchers and plane spotters hopefully caught a glimpse between the clouds  of a South African Airlines jet today.

The huge AirBus A34-600 is heading back to Johannesburg on a 15hour plus flight.

The plane made landfall over Southland earlier this week on its way to Christchurch.

Dozens of kiwi’s were on the repatriation flight from South Africa.

The return flight will travel down across the Southern Ocean before heading upwards to Johannesburg.
