On Saturday 23 June 2018 vintage aircraft will take to the sky from Krugersdorp airfield around 09h30 as the Reefsteamers steam train (perhaps hauled by a double header) departs Krugersdorp Railway Station heading towards Magaliesburg. The aircraft will then rendezvous overhead the train in the silo area and carry out orbits  before the train enters Magalies airspace after which they will return to the airfield. At the same time vintage cars and bikes will follow the train by road on the R24. Train passengers then get bussed to the Sleepy River resort, timing approx 12h00 to 14h00 where there are picnic facilities and food on sale. http://magaliessleepyriver.co.za/. Photographers can either follow the event by car or get on the train , departing Park Station at 08h00 – bookings at This email address is being protected from spambots.

There are plenty roadside photo opportunities from the silo area outside Krugersdorp through to Magalies on the R24 and particularity at the road – rail crossings. One good area for photography is the R24-R400 crossing.

Pilots, members and their families & friends are warmly invited to come witness this spectacle of vintage planes, cars and steam train. Treat yourself to an early morning breakfast at ‘26 South’ restaurant as planes prepare to take off or join the pilots at the airfield for lunch as they return.
