Does anyone know if Nationwide'd 727-100 ZS-NYY, ever got made airworthy again, so it could be used during South Africa's summer season as a back up aircraft?

Hi there.

She is airworthy. NYY was at Lanseria to get a new paint job and receive some maintenance. Will be back in service and will probably operate the JNB-CPT-JNB and JNB-DUR-JNB routes.

They were retired long ago! Somewhere between 2000-2002 i think, can anybody confirm/correct this?
