NZ7272 resides in the Aeronautical Training Squadron hangar at Woodbourne alongside the other airframes used for training. Well, most of it does, the tail section is rotting outside alongside the jet engine test bay.
I know there's a lot of money in aviation because I put it there.
Went flying in formation with this Harvard on Sunday ( ZS-WFD ) Strange enough, despite appearances, this Harvard was never in the SAAF and was imported into SA from the US in the late 80's and is c/n 88-18072 ex N7998C / Bu 90794.
Oh, lovely to see. Is that an original Junkers built Ju52? Or a CASA 352? Stunning photo!
Its actually ZS-AFA(2) and is a Casa 352L painted up to represent the original ZS-AFA(1) which was a JU-52 that served with SA Railways & Harbours, which was the forerunner to SAA (South African Airways)
Although the title of this thread is Aviation in South Africa ..... I have tried to keep it to posts which I think would be of interest to Kiwi's ... So it is with great pleasure that I post a pic of a Victa Airtourer that I photographed today (24 April) at Parys (FAPY)
