WELCOME


Welcome to Gabriel le Roux's pages about aviation in South Africa. I trust you will enjoy reading the articles and looking at the images in this website!

The major portion of the military aviation deals with the South African Air Force.
On this website civil as well as military aviation is covered. Civilian aircraft covered vary from small private aircraft to regional aircraft as well as large civil airliners.
Air Namibia is featured in an article that appears under AIRLINES.
Aircraft seen during Aviation Africa 1977 included this aerobatic Pitts Special.
During a tour undertaken from 14 November 2005 to 2 December 2005 fifty-eight venues were visited. Several airfields, airports and heliports were covered. These included the heliport in Table Bay Harbour.
This website features a series of articles about specific aircraft registrations. Canso CF-MIR/C-FMIR was based in South Africa for some time to undertake geophysical surveys.
The section FEATURE ARTICLES includes an article on the history of aviation in Springbok in the Northern Cape. This article includes a summary of Namakwaland Lugdiens.
An airshow and fly-in was held at Air Force Base Overberg in the Southern Cape over the weekend of 25/26 November 2005. The airshow was held on the 26th. In this view Stu Davidson's Sea Fury is seen on 26 November in front of the control tower.
Cape Town was one of the staging bases used by Boeing EC-135Ns during the Apollo space program and other test programs. Consequently some of these aircraft were occasionally seen at DF Malan Airport (ICAO code FACT). See the article titled Boeing EC-135N at DF Malan Airport for more details as well as the Gallery section (Airfields, airports and heliports WESTERN CAPE; DF Malan Airport).
Single-engine aircraft from South Africa and  Southern Africa feature in the articles. This image illustrates a Reims/Cessna FR172J (Rocket)  registered in the old Rhodesia.
