Hi Kremlin. I have no idea as SAA leased 9 Avro Yorks from BOAC. Listing is below:
Type Reg letters c/n Name Alternate reg
Avro type 685 'York' ZS-ATP Springbok BOAC G-AGNR

Avro type 685 'York' ZS-ATR 1222 Impala BOAC G-AGNU

Avro type 685 'York' ZS-ATS 1224 Sable BOAC G-AGNW

Avro type 685 'York' ZS-ATT 1233 MacDuff BOAC G-AGOF

Avro type 685 'York' ZS-ATU 1221 Mandalay BOAC G-AGNT

Avro type 685 'York' ZS-BGU 1216 Madras BOAC G-AGNN

Avro type 685 'York' ZS-BRA 1218 Manchester BOAC G-AGNP

Avro type 685 'York' ZS-BRB 1227 Monmouth BOAC G-AGNZ

Avro type 685 'York' ZS-BTT 1220 Melville BOAC G-AGNS

Maybe some one else can advise as to which one was used by General Jan Smuts.

Dear Colleagues, do you know if SAA Yorks wore any other than silver color schemes? There is a SAA York skin for flight sim with blue cheatline and white uper fuselage, is it based on true cs?
