Airshow sizzles

The airshow attracted over 35 000 people with most parents bringing along their children.

Aircraft enthusiasts came in their numbers to witness spectacular aerial displays by the Sa Air Force museum at the annual Air Show in Pretoria on Saturday.
The Air Show was held at the Swartkop Air Force Base, Valhalla, Pretoria and attracted over 35 000 people who made it a family outing.
The SA Air Force Museum takes care of more than 20 flyable war birds and has approximately 120 aircraft on static display.
The Museum put up a maximum SA Air Force aircraft and demonstrated operational capabilities, from the Gripen to the C160, Rooivalk, and the ever-popular Silver Falcon aerobatic team.
“We will ensure maximum Museum ‘Warbirds’ take to the skies to entertain the expected 35 000 spectators attending the event,” the Museum said.
This Air Show is an Annual event and gives the SA Air Force Museum the opportunity to achieve its main  objectives.
These include the creation of awareness for aviation  among the youth, to provide a world class facility to display the wonderful heritage of a 96 year old Air Force and to raise much needed funding to continually enhance displays.
