Most travellers get to the airport via Uber or a lift from a loved one, but one traveller taking a connecting flight from OR Tambo International Airport had his friend, who is a pilot, drop him off with his light aircraft.
The small aircraft is believed to have arrived at OR Tambo unannounced.
A video on Facebook shared by South Africa Live shows the pilot landing the plane.
They posted: “Only in South Africa! 😂😂 Light aircraft gatecrashes OR Tambo taxiway without having filed a flight plan and proceeded to land, while other aircrafts were queuing up to take off. According to ATC, the pilot said he was dropping off a friend who needed to catch a connecting flight! As you do 🇿🇦”(sic).
Facebook users were quick to comment on the video, but not for reasons you would think.
