Stunning set; my picks are the Impala close-up, Rooivalk with tank, and the Hawk close-up. Wonderful selection of machines there - the Cheetah and Mirage F1 :drool:

Thanks for the kind comments :smile:

2 Squadron was tied up with their own operations during this airshow, so they unfortunately couldn't be there with the Gripens
