a selection of images from a heritage trip which I did (together with a number of
others') to the SAA Museum at Rand Airport (South Africa).
It's one of those amazing places that many don't realise exists.
Rand Airport is still very much a functional airport (for light aircraft mostly),
and on weekends there are a number of interesting aircraft out and about -
either in the skies, doing aerobatics, or parked waiting for lift off.
apologies to the fundi's, as I cannot remember the names of the
two exquisite "specimens" above and below.
the control tower (below) is built to resemble the "front" of an airplane with
Art Deco detailing.
These are some of the old planes that have been retired into the
open air museum space.
and finally some detail of the Harvard Cafe - a vibrant cafe/ restaurant that
serves great food at reasonable prices and overlooks part of the runway.
