A Cape Town-based videographer has kindly posted video showing a glimpse around the first day of the African Aerospace & Defence Show now underway at Ysterplaat Air Base in South Africa. In addition to showing cool shots of the Gripen flying display, the video also tips off that South Africa is a possible C-17 customer. A Boeing C-17 is parked on the static line. Ever since South Africa canceled an order for the Airbus A400M, it’s military transport requirement has been a target for Boeing and the Lockheed Martin C-130J. It’s also possible that Embraer this week might add South Africa to the list of foreign partners pledging to buy the future KC-390 airlifter.
