South African Air Force Base Waterkloof. Officially opened on 1 August 1938 as Waterkloof Air Station, this is the SAAF's busiest airbase. It is situated just south of Pretoria and a few minutes flying time from AFB Swartkop. The base is also responsible for the management of the Ditholo Training Area (previosuly known as the Air Defence Artillery Defence Unit) at Hammanskraal. The base was established in 1938, initially as a practiced forced landing field, secondary to Swartkop. During those years, the airfield measured 1775 x 1550 yards of grass landing strip, which was typical and adequate for aircraft types of the 1930's and 1940's.
