Was surprised to spot this Convair 580 at a scrapyard right on the N1 outside of Cape Town (near Kraaifontein) today. From the colour scheme I am guessing it is ZS-KEI from the Titan group consigned to scrap (albeit mounted on poles). No props.

That is Convair 580 ZS-LYL. It is on display at the Winelands car museum, think they want to turn it into a restaurant.

On the R59 heading south from Joeys to Vereniging, there's the nose of a Boeing 737 sticking out the front of a warehouse. Any idea of its identity ?

The would be ex-Nationwide B732 ZS-OIV. It now belongs to a company called Nature's Choice.

Wasn't ZS-OIV sold to Shaheen Air in Pakistan as AP-BIP which was scrapped at Karachi in 2015.

Sorry don't know an alternative identity.
