Sad to see that happen to the older ladies of our time. Thank you for the pics FEJ, so many brutal pictures there of her being broken up :bye2:

Bon voyage IJA :handshake:

Had the honour to be a guest in her 'inside' and was even allowed to sit in the lefthand chair when she was still operating and up for maintenance in Polokwane......and where I met Moertoe for the first time in 2010.
This is really sad.... :rip2:

Always sad to see a dinosaur die, 15-20 yeas ago when plenty were still around no one cared, today it quite a rare species.

At least the soul of it will live on then.

What sad pictures ... not sure I like them very much.

Has Interair ceased ops ? Bruce Booysen used to be there.

Oh Yes ... Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to you all. (It is still the Christmas season you know).

Dronkie, yes they have but Moertoe and FEJ can probably give you more information as to what the status of the airline is now :thinking:
