27 Squadron SAAF - (2 members)

27 Squadron [Afr: 27 Eskader] was established as a World War II maritime patrol squadron of the South African Air Force. It was disbanded after the war and resurrected in the same role from 1951 to 1958. The squadron was initially equipped with Douglas C-47s but the squadron received Piaggio P-166S Albatross maritime patrol aircraft in 1969 to use in the inshore Maritime Patrol/Air-Sea Rescue roles. Its final period of service was from 1962 to 1990 when it was finally disbanded when its Piaggio Albatross aircraft were de-commissioned. 25 Squadron and 27 Squadron were amalgamated with 35 Squadron on 31 December 1990.
