ZS-SAU (cn 22971/578) WOW !!!!!!!! What more can I say. Only SAA can do it this big and outstanding. Today our President was inaugurated and SAA was asked to do a display. So SAA did it 3 times bigger and better by flying in formation using 2 x B747-300's and 1 x A340-600. Very ironic as well as the leading A340 is replacing the older B747's in the fleet. This Saturday SAA's classics will also fly its final revenue flight. So indeed appropiate for the classics to take part in this great display. Well done SAA !!!!!!!!!!!

A 5* photo. The B747 and A346 are among of the most elegant planes in the sky. And the vibrant SAA tail design makes it even better.
