The helicopter is a SA321L Super Frelon. The South African Air Force (SAAF) acquired 16 x SA321L transports on May 1966 which entered service between July 27, 1967 and November 1969. They were used during the counter insurgency fighting with Angola and retired in 1990 when they were replaced first by SA330 Puma and later by Oryx.

This Puma also parked here near the Harvard´s Clubwithout any markings.

Anybody knows the registration or reason why it is parked far away of the SAAF Museum ?

It is a Puma. IIRC a C model.

Is it a scrap yard now? There used to be a large hobby shop and some old trains at the location.

I think it's the one which was located at the Pretoria Zoo for a while. They returned it to the SAAF Museum a few years back. There was a thread about this elsewhere soon this forum. If so, it looks in far better nick than when it was returned from the zoo...

OK, I checked, I posted this a while back - memory fading... :oops: . If it's the zoo one, then the tail number is 133, C-model.
