The FSAAFM Ysterplaat Branch is currently busy with several projects, most notably the restoration of Buccaneer 416.
Buccaneer restoration project:

The Buccaneer restoration project is a very hands on project currently underway at the Cape Town branch of the SAAF museum. The work involves physically restoring the aircraft for static display so that the aircraft can be seen on display once more.

This past weekend saw a lovely sunny Saturday in Cape Town - perfect weather to get the spray gun out! Touch ups on Buccaneer 416's paintjob where the order of the day. Blue first, grey later. Dakota 6832 is also progressing slowly with the first of many panels receiving attention from Mr Sandpaper.
