7 Squadron SAAF - (2 members)

7 Squadron used the Impala II in the Ground Attack role. It was reformed with Harvards at Ysterplaat in August 1951, but was disbanded in 1959. The Harvard equipped squadron was reformed once again, this time at Youngsfield in the Cape on 1 August 1961. Moving to Ysterplaat late in 1969, the squadron received the Impala Mk I in 1977 when it was a citizen force unit. In 1978 the squadron moved to Cape Town International Airport. During March 1985, 7 Squadron was transferred from DF Malan airport to AFB Langebaanweg before eventually moving to AFB Pietersburg in the early 1990's, by this time also flying the Impala Mk II. The squadron was disbanded in December 1992.
