I had a few printed SAA schedules from the 80's which I donated to the SAA Museum via JAWS a good few years ago.
How come every time my ship comes in I'm at the airport?

Surprised to see that the SA201 flight number was not retired after the 1954 Comet in-flight breakup. Also, somewhat chilling to see SA295 in there.

SA 295 The Helderberg only went down on 28 November 1987, long after this schedule was issued.

Which is exactly why it's chilling to see it in that schedule.

I see that the Helderberg registration ZS-SAS has been allocated to a Piper Cherokee based in Cape Town.
The CAA should have never allowed that, IMHO
