My husband was picking someone up at the airport in Lilongwe, Malawi today at 12:30 pm local time (flight from Joburg) and spotted Amazing Race production crew in the airport and teams coming off the plane, trying to get taxis.

That's great news, malawiafrica!  Thanks to you and your husband for passing this along to us.  :jumpy:  :luvya: :party:

:welcome2: 


By the way, Land and Lake Safari added over 50 new pictures on their Facebook site yesterday. At a quick glance, I see one with a camera crew, but I don't think it's TAR related. Someone who's more informed than me about HD camera equipment might want to make sure though.

I know we've moved on to Africa, but two work colleagues were in the same plane to Bangkok on the 24th with the surfer guys. They took GA 868, departed Jakarta at 12.50, arrived in Bangkok 4.50ish. They were the only team in the flight, with cameraman & sound guy. Ran out of the plane after the door was opened. & to think that I was supposed to be on that flight with them!  :groan:

Welcome malawiafrica!  Can you ask your husband if he knows for sure which plane he saw the teams get off?  There was a South African plane and a Kenya Airways plane both at about the same time at Lilongwe airport.

From Facebook:

On the shores of Lake Malawi watching The Amazing Race contestants coming in. Classic.
56 minutes ago

Someone else (His sister as it turns out) is asking where he's at, but I don't recognize the name.

The poster is listed as being from Durban, but said Tuesday he was on the Zambezi headed for Livingston.

From reading his Twitter timeline he may have also been on that flight from South Africa. Could be further confirmation that teams were coming from Johannesburg.

One of his previous tweets:

From twitter:

It also seemed like amazing race was filming. could be the asian version, we talked to a team with a chinese girl wearing yellow #irony LOL
39 minutes ago

just came back from holiday to cyprus. nicosia was awesome.
41 minutes ago

This person is listed as being from Ankara Turkey. I would guess the sighting was in Cyprus. The team wearing yellow at LAX does have an Asian woman so I think this is very credible info.

Cyprus! Or maybe Turkey!  :hearts:

However, I should point out that these are the first two tweets this person has sent since August 2009 so maybe we (I?) shouldn't get too carried away just yet. I'm also wondering if the teams could have gotten from Malawi to Cyprus this fast.
