We paid a visit to the museum that accepts donation so entrance is free. What an experience to see such a neat and well kept display of aircraft from way back when.

A trip to the South African Air Force Museum is probably best suited to the military aircraft enthusiast.

As a 22 year veteran of the RAF it was intriguing to see how things were on the other side of the world. Very dedicated gentlemen were very chatty. Lots to see and appreciate, needs funds to help keep it open so dig deep.
