In short, very few wing spar hours left, certainly not enough to train new aircrew and keep them current. Then there is the matter that not many of the young SAAF maintenance people are interrested in gaining currency and spending many hours of overtime on a voluntary project such as this. In the end, the risk of something happening with the aircraft in the air is not worth losing her.
