Programme of events:
Keep in mind that this is a charity event with the aim of raising funds for the museum Visitors can start arriving from 8.00 in the morning.
You will be welcomed at the gate by members from the Mercedes Club and MG club which will man the gate together. You will be asked for a donation for the museum. In exchange, every individual that donates R50,00 or multiples thereof will be given a ticket for each donation to enter a draw for a ride in a Helicopter. In addition, members will be handed a ticket for one free lunch and cold drink per car. We also have some other surprise giveaways for you.
PLEASE NOTE! Hand your donations only to Mercedes-Benz or MG collectors at the gate. They are the only persons handing out tickets. Do not hand money to Airforce personnel or any other person.
NOTE: the museum has kindly donated 24 rides in the helicopters and 10 rides in the Kudu Aeroplane. One lucky winner will have a flip in a Harvard Aeroplane. So your chances are very good. Please buy as many tickets as you can, each has the same chance, the more tickets you buy the higher the chances for a ride
We expect the rides to start at about 9.30 so don't arrive too late. We will have a draw before each flight as long as the helicopters and plane keeps on flying, or until we have used up our allocated flights.
This occasion celebrates the 86th anniversary of the first helicopter flight, so there will be many planes on display. Only for this special occasion, all the exhibition halls will be open for you the browse through. Besides the airforce planes you can have a close look at planes like a Boeing 707, a Transall 160 and off course all the other exhibits.
Members of the public are also invited. In appreciation of our attendance the museum personnel have set aside a dedicated parking area for each clubs members' cars. The people at the gate will direct you to this area.
