Take flight in the ‘Tante Ju’, which is a plane that plays a big part in South Africa’s early aviation history. This plane is one of six Junker JU-52’s in the world that has been restored for flight.
When SAA was first founded in 19354, they ordered three of these magnificent planes, only to purchase another 19 bigger engine models some twenty years later, although with the outbreak of World War 2, the order was never received.
A few famous faces have been aboard the ‘Tante Ju’, such as Michael Jackson, John Travolta as well as Queen Margaret of Denmark and King Gustaf from Sweden. This is a 30 minute flight that you will never forget and is certainly worth the experience.
