Joburg peeps... Heads up. A single engined plane, with a glorious engine note, that looked a lot like a P-51 from the glimpse I got of it, just flew over Randburg.

Did anyone else see it?

It could very well be Menno Parsons Mustang... There are a few Trojans around as well but they don't fly as often
The thunder mustang crashed last year and I doubt that will be back anytime soon

There's a large fly-in at Nylstroom this weekend, so it could be heading there

This is last years event

Used to work for a company that imported action cameras and went to a couple of fly-ins... Good fun.

Yeah, whatever it was, that engine sound was something else. Low rumble. Nothing like the buzzing passenger jobbies you see most days... Also, low wing monoplanes are a rarity.

If it was fast, loud and silver it was Menno Parsons who has Mustang Sally.
