AFB Ysterplaat - (5 members)

Air Force Base Ysterplaat (FAYP) is situated near Cape Town, this small base was built in the 1920's. It is not to a certain extent precisely known when aviators started using Ysterplaat as a landing field but it eventually became known as Air Force Station Brooklyn. In 1947, the Base became known as Air Force Station Ysterplaat and became the new home base for the Air Navigators School in 1953. The current AFB Ysterplaat was officially founded on 1 February 1968, after the railways laid down their ownership of the land on which the base is situated.
