SE-BDG

This picture is from 1992 and shows the former Transair DC-6B as ZS-MUL, registered to Avia Air in South Africa. Today it is parked at Swartkop Airforce Base near Pretoria and belongs to The South African Airways Museum Society.

Recently, mr John Austin-Williams of the South African Airways Museum Society provided us with an interesting link to a website about their DC 6 A/C, including former TSA aircraft SE-BDG.

This aircraft has been prepared for a ferry flight and a number of pictures and a well-written story can be found on their webpage. Click here to read the story
