Today's pics were taken in March 1946 at one of the Douglas plants.
They show Douglas DC-4 ZS-AUA being prepared for delivery to SAA.

The scene portrays a gourmet meal being served in the luxury environment of the first class section of one of SAA's Boeing 747's.
What a way to travel :wink: :wink:
Had to grin at those "vleis, reis en aartappels" - but it looks awesome admittedly.

Great thread photon, look forward to future posts.
