Puzzled - and amused - commuters took to Twitter this morning after spotting a jet being towed on the N1 South near Midrand.

‏@Nadiagerber80, who took a photo of the plane, confirmed it was being towed on its wheels on the highway.

@Pigspotter tweeted: "It's real. N1 South, Mirage F1 Jet on the Highway. Wonder if it'll pay etolls?"

@GlynnЯyan‏Glynnryan quipped: "Maybe (the pilot's) doing his learners licence and needs to operate it under supervision?".

With ‏@Buzzy14 explaining, "Yes, it's a fighter jet, just borrowed from Zwartkop Airbase for the day! Happy Heritage Day!!!", humour returned.

TURNEDUP‏@kabasa_tumelo99 tweeted: "I hope it wont near TB Joshua's church" while @letsepe‏@Letsepe2 joked, "Lol it's one of the Guptas".
