Facilities & Activities for Visitors
 



Aircraft Park


The management of Rand Airport have generously donated a tract of land adjacent to runway 29 for the SAA Museum Society to use to display its collection of Static Display Aircraft.

Our B747, ZS-SAN, Lebombo, is open for viewing. However the cockpit is closed as the aircraft is considered "Live". There is however a B747 "Classic" Simulator which is identical in all respects to the B747 cockpit and this may be viewed. The simulator is not operational.
 
Members of the public are welcome to take photographs of the aircraft.

Should interior access be required to any of the other static display aircraft then application must be made in writing, via e-mail, (Contact Us) stating the number of visitors wishing to view inside the aircraft. This will then be treated as a "Guided Tour".

Ideally at least a week's notice is required for "Guided Tours" to give us sufficient time to allocate a Tour Guide.
