SAAF Museum to receive Boeing 707Date: 4 October 2007
A 60 Squadron Boeing 707 (1419) was due to be flown from AFB Waterkloof to Swartkop on Friday 5 October 2007 at 11:00 for delivery to the SAAF Museum.
The aircraft is one of only two Boeing 707's that remained in service with 60 Squadron at the time. The other 707 (1415) was flown to AFB Makhado earlier in the week. The remaining three aircraft have been withdrawn from
use some time ago, with one (an ex SAA aircraft) apparently earmarked for the SAA Museum Society at Rand.
However, the delivery was postponed on the Thursday.
