This story began 1 day earlier. On Sept 22 I left FAWK on board ZS-BMH, ZS-AUB was the second just behind us in the line-up enroute to JNB. A simply 15-20 minutes long flight became a 40-45 minuts long real horror flight to JNB. The Orange one diverted to Wonderboom. ZS-AUB is the only one airplane which wears my all time favorite color, now I can see it flying from outside 1 day later like I was flying on board with it. I was very excited, those were the most happy minutes under a final approach.

They gotta use this plane in a movie. That way it'll be recorded on video forever.

This is one of my favorite color schemes too. I started plane watching in the late 70s and I was able to see some of SAA 747s at JFK in the scheme that closely resembles this. Nice that you were able to get this photo.
