    And this from Avherald.com-
    "On Mar 1st 2019 South Africa's CAA (SACAA) reported they have opened an investigation into a SAA pilot, who had allegedly been flying commercial aircraft with a forged air transport pilot license for more than 20 years. The matter came to light during the investigation into the flight SA-206 (editorial note: this is in error, correct flight number was SA-260) from Johannesburg to Frankfurt in November 2018, which had a reportable incident in Swiss Airspace. The pilot in question has already resigned."

    I would say 20 years for SAA to make their system more "robust" is an understatement. However my grandmother did drive with a NY State Driver's License that expired in the early 60's without ever being renewed well into the late 70's when she stopped driving. I guess the NY State Police didn't bother little old ladies driving 1965 Ford Falcons.

    My Grandma had a 65 Falcon with a 170 c.i.d straight six that couldn't pull the skin off a rice pudding. ;)
