9. South Africa Presidential Plane (C130)
Another non-surprise member of the top 10 list of magnificent African Presidential planes is Jacob Zuma’s C130 superspeed plane. President Zuma’s plane offers superior performance with a wide range of flexibility for every theater of operations and requirements of the decorated leader. Although the plane is specifically meant for flying in harsh environments, South African authorities love it because as they say “It keeps the president ready for next mission and for whatever future holds”. There is however rumor that the president could be on his way to getting a superiorBoeing 777 luxurious private jet – at the South African taxpayers’ expense of course. Watch this space.
