Hi All

I saw a post on FB about an airshow happening later this year at Langebaan. Does anyone have any more details regarding it? Full SAAF airshow or just Silver Falcons and commercial/private aircraft?

Thanks in advance :)

From the little I know, the airshow will be held on 8/9th December (always subject to change!), whilst the Silver Falcon anniversary will be a private function.

This one will be a real treat as the last Langebaanweg airshow was in the mid 90's around the time the Cheetah C entered service.

R90 is a bit steep..Langebaanweg is also far out of Cape Town..124km for people to travel..guess you guys are hungry for an..airshow..so guess worth it..but even if I was in cape town still not cheap to go there.I hope you get good stuff to see that its worth it..will the Gripen be there?C-130?

My accomodation have been booked 2 months ago already. And 124km is not far, as I understand they really going to a lot of effort and although it can change as always with airshows, I understand the Gripen and hawk will be their.

The date on the poster has been "smudged" so much that it could be a 3, 5 or 9.... #-o #-o #-o

The date in the "fine print" is clearly visible as the 9th!

Any foreign participation that'll make the R90 worthwhile?

Yes, but that does not excuse the design error.

Thats a really good website, kudos to whoever built it. Perhaps get the SANDF to hire them to sort out their websites.
