UA 744 In JNB Today?

Mon Mar 14, 2005 11:09 pm

I was in JNB today and saw them towing a United 747-400 from a South African Airways hangar. It was stripped to the metal fuselage, except for part of the tail which still had the SA)">UA colors on it. Anyone know if SA is buying a SA)">UA 744?

I believe it's a Corsair Aircraft in JNB for paint and refit- this was discussed last week on this board- hope you had a good time in SA Big grin
I love the smell of jet fuel in the morning.

A few months. It's down for a D check and the reconfiguration parts coming from Bellingham, Washington, USA have not been shipped yet.
