The annual SAAF Museum Air Show has been scheduled and has been approved to take place on 11 May 2013. This Air Show has proved to be a favourite on the annual Air Show calendar and has been awarded the Best South African Air Show for 2011 and 2012, by the Aero Club of South Africa. The Air Show is known to attract up to[masked] spectators and is a not to miss event for aviation enthusiasts, this year for motoring enthusiasts too. We present a family atmosphere and costs are therefore kept affordable to promote attendance. The Museum Air Show remains the favoured event to attend and we are fortunate that most of the pilots and local airlines that participate in the annual Air Show attend and display their aircraft at no cost to the Museum.

The Museum is also using this opportunity to celebrate other noteworthy achievements. The SAAF Museum has been providing aviation awareness to the general public for the past 40 Years and will use the Air Show to celebrate this milestone. Also of note is that the C130 Hercules as well as the Mirage III celebrates 50 years since delivery to the SAAF.

Children under the age of 12 enter free of charge.

No Cooler Bags, Fire Arms, Fire Works, Alcohol, 2- Way Radios, No Glass Bottles, No Breakable Glass Items, No Gas or Charcoal braais

    Looking forward to seeing you today. I'm going a bit later in the day after the exhibition walkabout. I'm wearing a purple long sleeve top plus green wind breaker if it's cold and heading straight for the Canon area. Not sure if the military museum will be open or if one is allowed to take photographs inside of the museum.

      If you're in Joburg, please consider joining for photographic exhibition walkabout at In Toto Gallery in the morning - it's going to be great. http://www.meetup.com...­
      I'm heading to the airshow after the walkabout.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
