12th Reunion of Pelican 16

The 12th reunion of the survivors of Pelican 16 took place at the Blue Peter Hotel in Blaauwberg Strand on the evening of 13 July 2006.
The Blue Peter Hotel has become a significant contributor to the SAAF Museum, and in this instance, the spread of Moroccan food, the decor in the dining room as well as the waiters who were all dressed in traditional dress made for an extremely enjoyable get together.
Sadly, not all of the members were able to attend, Chris Viviers is in hospital recovering from cancer and General Page was also unable to attend as was Blake Vorster. The Officer Commanding 35 Squadron, Lt Colonel Marcel Engelbrecht and his spouse represented the Base and the Squadron.
A moment was set aside to commemorate the lives of those crew who have since passed on to Higher Service.
The SAAF Museum and the crew of Pelican 16 thank the organisers and sponsors for their very generous contribution to the success of the evening.
