Yesterday evening I landed at JNB from CPT and on the slow down we passed Denel Aviation on the far side of the field. There is a white 743 standing there and the fuselage has been sliced through at about the door 4 line. The rear of the fuselage is just lying on the ground with the tail still on. Sad sight  Sad

Sad, another B 743 gone. Does anybody know which B 743 it was? I checked the database but didn't find any all-white B 747-300 in JNB. According to aerotransport.org there are three B 743 stored or derelict at JNB:
ZS-SAJ,
ZS-SAC and
D2-TEC

I think it must have been D2-TEC of TAAG Angola. Can anybody confirm?

ZS-SAJ "Ndizani" is still there:

I saw it parked next to the chopped one, sans engines.

D2-TEC started life as ZS-SAU:

I'll see if I can do some snooping, I remember a couple of white 743s there at one stage.
