Commanding Officer for the SA Airforce Museum Airshow Lieutenant Colonel Melvin Bruintjies says the upcoming airshow is aimed at exposing young people to the military and aviation.

The museum will have its annual airshow at the Swartkop Military Base on Saturday (May 5).

The museum collects, restores and preserves all military and aviation equipment.

Bruintjies says: ” The museum is not just about bringing awareness to young people but it is also to have interaction.  We have achieved that through the museum.”

Gates will open at 7am on Saturday for the airshow.

The South African Air Force has meanwhile joined hands with Gautrain to showcase who is the fastest – rail or air.

The Gautrain can legally go at a speed of 180km per hour.

The SABC Morning Live team has been a part of the showcase for the past three years.
