The main draw card at this morning’s breakfast fly-in at the Ceres Model aircraft flying club was the Bosbok. It’s a ex South African Air Force reconnaisance aircraft. The 40 AM.3C’s were delivered to South Africa between May 1972 and December 1974. The first Bosbok to be produced for the SAAF made its debut at the Turin Air Show in 1972. During its service with the SAAF, the Bosbok was operated by 41 and 42 Squadrons, usually operating from Potchefstroom. The Bosbok came to the fore during military operations in SWA and Angola during the late 1970s and 1980s. The aircraft was used extensively on the border and several were shot down during the course of the war. It was in the dangerous role of target-marking that the Bosbok really excelled.
