The Friends of The South African Air Force Museum (FSAAFM) acquired the components of AX-K between May and August 2015. A thorough assessment of these proved that the damage sustained was substantial, with all major items (fuselage, tail assembly, wings, flaps, undercarriage, engine, etc) beyond repair, therefore requiring new-build spars, ribs, frames, skins and a host of other components. Smaller items such as cockpit controls, etc, would have to be checked and serviced for potential re-use with new piping, cables and/or electrics.
The FSAAFM are not equipped with the resources – manpower nor mechanical – to carry out the above work on site at Zwartkop AFB and therefore seek the support of outside agencies to assist. Any offers will be gratefully considered and appreciated.
