‘Naked’ BAe 146 ferried to Rand

BAe 146 ZS-SOR

The Naked Lady heads to Rand (Carl Dollenberg)

Former Air Dolomiti BAe 146-300 ZS-SOR (msn E3155) has been ferried from Lanseria to nearby Rand, ending a long period of inactivity. She had arrived at Lanseria in August 2010, imported by African Airline Investments, but had not flown since, even as she was sequentially re-registered to a number of different owners. Her current registered owner appears to be attempting to put her to work. In early January, her fuselage was stripped to bare metal. Some wag then spray-painted the name “The naked lady SSSH” on the fuselage in red. She left Lanseria for Rand on 25 March, apparently for painting in a new customer’s colors.
