					Objects of the Friends
The Friends are a voluntary non-profit organisation run by civilians dedicated to the preservation and display of the history and aircraft of the South African Air Force (SAAF). The Friends are primarily concerned with providing the Museum with three vital necessities, without which the Museum would be a mere shadow of its present self: fund-raising, maintenance and restoration work. The Cape Town branch was officially formed in 1984. Members who wish to work on aircraft or undertake other tasks may join various work parties. Current restoration projects include the interior of the Ventura to display condition and the Dakota to airworthy condition. Others could help man the Museum shop at airshows, clean exhibits or undertake research. Membership of the Friends is open to all and although we provide support to the SAAF Museum, we do not receive any funds from the SAAF or the government. Donations are most welcome. Contact us at info@saafmuseum.org.za for more information.

The SAAF Museum
Headquartered at AFB Swartkop, the SAAF Museum has covered an immense amount of ground with the limited resources at its disposal since its incorporation in 1973. Satellite museums have been established at AFB Ysterplaat, Cape Town, and next to Port Elizabeth Airport, with a complement of more than 70 aircraft at locations around the country. The Museum's main task is concerned with the collection and display of aircraft and items associated with the SAAF. It is also concerned with the restoration of SAAF aircraft to both static and flying condition. The Museum's functions can be divided into three areas:  Research and documentation;  Operation of the Historic Flight; and  The storage of aviation-related artifacts.
