THE AIRFORCE - SQUADRONS
SAAF Museum Historic Flight
The Museum's Historic Flight operates more aircraft than some operational squadrons in the SAAF. Stringent aircraft maintenance standards combined with strict criteria for accepting pilots to fly at airshows has ensured an enviable safety record. The logistical problems faced by the Museum's engineering staff derive from the operation of individual aircraft types each requiring parts no longer readily available. The airworthy aircraft are maintained and flown by the Museum's historic flight, with volunteer ground and aircrew from other squadrons flying the aircraft based at the satellite Mueums at Cape Town, Durban and Port Elizabeth.
