I think it was the 10 or 12.12.1983, I flew with SAA from Frankfurt to Johannesburg, we did a stop somewhere, I think it was Isladosol or something like that.
Does anybody here know the 3 Letter code for that Airport is and is it possible to find out what the Registration of the Aircraft was?
It can only be either:
ZS-SAS Helderberg B747-244BM or
ZS-SAR Waterberg B747-244BM.

could well be Cape Verde. My mother flew there on South African around that same time period. I remember her telling me she was the only one getting off the plane there while the plane continued on to South Africa.

Most if not all SAA flights DID stop in Sal for a long time, and even the 747-400's did until recently on their way to North America until it was switched to Accra or Dakar. Not sure if any still do...none of the ones I fly on do, but a lot of times I go via Europe instead of nonstop to South Africa from USA

SA service via SID to ATL, will end on June 30, 2006 - the end of an era. From then on, JNB-IAD-JNB will run via DKR, just like the SA JFK flights.

Round that time, when the combi's were introduced, one of the FRA flights used to operate FRA-SID-WDH-JNB, to serve the German community living in Namibia (SWA as it was then). The only European flights that didn't stop in SID or LPA were one of the LON flights (stopped in ABJ once weekly), and the SP flights to ROM/ATH/TLV that would stop in LIS. At one stage there was a a FRA-MAD-JNB SP flight as well.
