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)
