SAA Museum Relives Historic Rugby Moment at Rand Airport

As the nation catches Rugby World Cup finals fever once more, the South African Airways Aviation Museum, located at Germiston’s Rand Airport, offers a chance to relive the 1995 magic with the iconic Boeing 747-244 Super B Lebombo.

This historic aircraft once graced the skies over Ellis Park Stadium just before the 1995 Rugby World Cup final showdown with the All Blacks. Today, it finds its home at the SAA Aviation Museum, carefully preserved for posterity.

The very same Boeing 747, known for displaying the uplifting message ‘Good luck Bokke’ on its underside during the memorable low-altitude flypast in 1995, continues to inspire.

On October 28, exactly 28 years later, rugby enthusiasts can experience the nostalgia of 1995 by attending the museum’s Rugby World Cup event hosted beneath the wings of this iconic Boeing 747.
