Gripen Securing the South African Skies

At least six South African Gripens from 2 Squadron from Makhado airbase have been based this week at AFB Waterkloof flying regularly along the Johannesburg/Pretoria corridor on aerial surveillance and security taskings during the menorial week of Nelson Mandela.

For 3 days this week Nelson Mandelas body will lie in state at the Union buildings in Pretoria where a large number of dignataries and   ordinary South africans  can pay their respects.
