Remark Photographer
ZS-ATL (cn 18-2058) This aircraft was named "Jan van Riebeeck" during its service with South African Airways. General Smuts often used this Lodestar as an executive transport aircraft. After WWII, successive Ministers of Transport used the aircraft in the same role. Comair bought the Lodestar from SAA in 1954 and used it up to November 1968. The aircraft is now finished in a representative camouflage colour scheme carried by SAAF Lodestars during WWII. Thanks to IPMS for the info.
