Navy only had a few boats on display, but then, much of the fleet was at the V&A Waterfront. :D

The SAAF only had two helis on static display, but there are plenty of formation flypasts. A C-212 and two King Airs just flew over my house.

Interesting to see navy using R1s for drill.

The ground equipment all looks in really good condition :smt023

There's a C-130 buzzing around. Maybe flares at the live Fire ?

Shoot was good. I think they held back quite a bit for tonight.

They've just about recovered a truck that was stuck in the sand, below the water line. Being smashed by waves :oops:

Few vehicles and a tanking have a tow line hooked up :smt023
