SAAF Museum Air Show 2011

The South African Air Force Museum has an annual air show at Zwartkop Air Force base (Pretoria). One of the objectives is to collect money for the maintenance/restoration of the wonderful collection of aircraft and memorabilia on display at the museum.

Below are some of my photos from the show on the 21st of May 2011. This was one of the better air shows that I've seen in a long time.
