Seeing as I'm up in the north of South Africa for a few days, I'm going to head out to the SAAF's primary museum at AFB Swartkops, here's the link with exhibits.

Not many, but some unique planes, definitely get photos.

Great shots Niki! THose are some really neat aircraft. You don't see many of those at any normal museum here, that's for sure.

Looking through the photos #103 peaked my interest. Is that DH Venom? Sure looks like it any way. Thanks for the pictures!!!!!!

The KFC plane looks like a DH Caribou.

The F-1 is an incredible airplane. It's one of those planes that you know means business. Sleek, well-proportioned and d**n fast, it's an awesome plane on the ground and in the air.
