N787MD White SAA B744 At Filton

Fri Oct 26, 2007 3:10 am

Anyone know plans of the ex SAA B744 fleet now they have started being withdrawn?

Off another forum N787MD (ex ZS-SAX C/N 23367) is parked all white on apron 4 at Filton Airfield.

Their is also a pic of it at this link: http://filton.blogspot.com/

Everything seems to of gone quiet recently in regards to these planes.

It´s for Transaero.

Seems to me like that at least the remaining SAA RR-powered 744s are going to Russia. There are still ZS-SAY and -SAZ. I doubt it´ll only be ZS-SAX that is for Transaero.
