Some great stories of trips to the U.K. and nightstop on Ascention Island etc :tmi: :mail: :good:


It's a lot more sophisticated than that, gear up. :cool2:

When I was a radar operator in the SAAF I was offered a short service commission as an EW [electronic warfare] operator on the B707's [60 sqdn].

I could kick myself now for turning it down - but 4 years is a looong time to a 20 year old...... :shrug1:

I did get to fly around on Safair's 707's though, and lasted 8 years with them.

After 20 days of missions the GlobalTanker is going back home (KCOS), but before leaving, is receiving a water salute from the Arturo Merino Benitez SSEI in gratitude for their work in the worst wildfire that Chile had in its history.

Great pic this. Love the blackout on the nose below the windshield. I seem to recall the early SAA 74's having something similar....might be wrong.

Morning Bogey 10,

There were a number of SAA B74's with the "Bandit" paint job. Below are just a couple from the various series that did have it. More pictures on AvCom here. Copyright Snitch and others on AvCom.

Yup...my ride to Hong Kong March/April 1987 (The year of the Helderberg disaster) was the "MATROOSBERG' B747-SP
After 3 weeks spending with Far Eastern cultures, customs and food, that ORANGE TAIL was the most wonderful sight on the day of our departure back to SA.
