defenceWeb’s understanding is SA Air Force fast movers – Gripens from 2 Squadron and Hawk Mk 120s from 85 Combat Flying School, both based at AFB Makhado – will be part of the flypast. Exact numbers have not been divulged and the same applies for helicopters with the 16 Squadron home-grown Rooivalk combat support helicopter expected to take part alongside Oryx medium transports and Agusta A-109 light utility machines, both probably from 17 Squadron at AFB Zwartkop. Air transport is expected to be represented by a 28 Squadron Hercules C-130BZ and a CASA 212 from 44 Squadron, both at AFB Waterkloof.

A number of aircraft have been seen over Pretoria apparently practicing for the inauguration, including C212 transports, King Airs, a PC-12, C-130s, Gripens and Rooivalk. PC-7 trainers are also expected to take part in the flypast, which will include aircraft from national carrier South African Airways (SAA).

2019.05.26. Unfortunately dark winter light and haze, but that's not going to stop me. Overall a good day and good flying lets hope it heralds a new era for SA inc.
