A Bombardier Dash 8 Q400 wearing the colours of SA Express, turning onto the taxiway to line up on Runway 26 for a direct departure path for the 1 hour hop from Port Elizabeth to Cape Town. The photo was taken on 26 Oct 2017, quite some time before SAX was grounded in May 2018 for "irregularities". SA Express is a wholly owned subsidiary of the Government-owned National Flag Carrier, South African Airways. Unfortunately I cannot identify the aircraft in the background, which is parked near the old Airforce Museum Hanger.
