Must have found something to climb up onto otherwise those bins would have thwarted me completely... in those days before H&S rules went crazy, I could even get a friendly fork-lift driver to help out occasionally with a lift on a pallet! This is the former N8055U of UA which became 5N-AWZ when actually bought by Trans Sahel in 11.86. Then to African International (3D-ADV) in 8.87 and stored at JNB as ZS-PAE, b/u by 2012
