Polokwane Airshow 2017

Polokwane International Airport, formerly known as Pietersburg International Airport is located 5km north of the city of Polokwane in the Limpopo province. The airport was once a vibrant air force base with a number of fighter jets based there.
The 7th of October saw a welcome return of a Airshow celebrating the National Transport Month initiative. The South African Civil Aviation Authority – SACAA , the Limpopo Provincial Government and @Gateway Airports Authority Limited (GAAL) hosted an airshow and Aviation Awareness Project.
Low cloud and rain was what one could expect first on the program of the day, but with a lot of luck the show went on by 11am the show started with the weather improving by the minute with the show opening with Major Geoffrey ‘Spartan’ Cooper in probably the best vapor gripen display to date in South Africa, at one point the entire aircraft was completely covered in a ball of cloud during hard G turns.
