Another pic of Pitts Special S-2B ZS-SII. It has been sprayed with Mazda metallic red so it should look very neat when complete

And so that's it... 64 years of history demolished in a little under thirteen days. Just a pile of metal and some power-/pot-plants remaining.
Sad to see them go, but glad to have had such historic airplanes around Rand for a little while. :(

My guess is that the next to go would in fact be the An24 TN-AHH, SAAB 340 N340SS or Embraer 120 C9-AUU that are also parked near the museum.

Of those three, the AN-24 TN-AHH seems pretty much airworthy, other than hoses etc which would have "lifed out" so that would be a real shame
