Wings and Wheels show cancellation

The senior command cadre of the SA Air Force (SAAF) has not won itself any friends, particularly in the Western Cape, by the late cancellation of the Wings and Wheels show due to have taken place at AFB Ysterplaat next weekend.

A five paragraph statement issued by Major General Wiseman Mbambo, General Officer Commanding Air Command, more than 24 hours after base personnel were informed the show had been canned, said: “After a due diligence review of arrangements for the show and several attempts at corrective action, Air Force Command found it difficult to reconcile the show with the SAAF’s vision and strategic outcomes”.

“The command subsequently decided there was no option but to cancel the airshow.”
