Pretoria - Part 7

The driveway leading up to the Airforce Memorial, is lined with wild olive trees.

Built on Bays Hills, the memorial offers a clear view of the Air Force Base in Zwartkop and the top of the Pretoria's Voortrekker Monument.
The design takes the shape of a triangular star-pattern comprised of three wings, of which one forms a neutral chapel for small services. The memorial is about the height of six storeys and symbolises flight.
The Garden of Remembrance is set out for approximately 3 000 members of SAAF who died during war.
Below it, there is a museum housing of airforce planes which I featured back in September.
Below is one of the Pom-Pom trees growing in the gardens.
