This is the website hangar for C-47 6832, the famous ‘coelacanth’ Dak.

The restoration essentially started when a decision was taken to close AFB Ysterplaat. When that project was terminated, the decision was then taken to shut down the base at Cape Town International and move the museum assets back to the museum at Ysterplaat.

Not all of the assets were able to be moved immediately, but 6832 was moved by Herculean effort.
