AFB Waterkloof - (9 members)

Air Force Base Waterkloof (FAWK) was first opened in 1938 as Waterkloof Air Station just south of Pretoria, primarily as a practiced forced landing field, secondary to AFB Swartkop. The base was upgraded between 1952 and 1956 after it was decided to construct tarred runways for the new generation of jet fighters. Due to the fast expansion of the SAAF of the 1960's and 1970's, it became the foremost airbase of the time.
