30 Squadron SAAF - (1 members)

30 Squadron SAAF [Afr 30 Eskader] was established in 1944 and saw service as a medium bomber squadron in Italy during the Second World War. After the war, the squadron was disbanded and was resurrected on 8 December 1980 at AFB Ysterplaat when 'A' Flight of 15 Squadron, flying Super Frelon and Puma helicopters was re-designated as 30 Squadron, a medium transport helicopter squadron which used the Puma and Super Frelon in the Transport/Search and Rescue/Casualty Evacuation roles - a role it retained until it was finally disbanded. In January 1986 all Super Frelon helicopters were transferred to 15 Squadron and the Squadron continued flying Pumas until 31 December 1991 when these aircraft were transferred to 22 Squadron and 30 Squadron was disbanded for the last time.
