SAA had two resident photographers in those days (Janet Allison and Sonja Grunbauer);the pics were probably taken by one of them.

A pic for those interested in the aircraft of the early years of the SAAF.
The plane is an "Mpala" serial "156" ; it was locally developed by the SAAF by installing a Bristol Jupiter radial engine on the airframe of a De Havilland DH4. With this type of aircraft the SAAF flew combined SAAF-RAF trans-Africa flights in 1928 and 1929.
