I see, ZS-EOS is currently in the UK, having been spotted and photographed in Glasgow and Dundee in the last few days (see here and here), which begs me to ask, has it been sold?

Most larger machines are listed in dollars so you'd make some extra Rand over what you paid.
Flipside is all these machines are now more expensive to insure locally..

ZS-EOS have been in UK before and come back to SA. Believe it is often based at Denham Aerodrome in London during summer.
Saw ZS-EOS there in 2014 and I believe their A119 was there last year.

I read a while ago it cost R260M new. The cheapest second hand one I can find is R100M with 3300hrs... :shock: I talked to the Anglo pilots once, the say it burns around 500l/h.
