METEOR TARGET DRONE

These aircraft were originally purchased by the SA Navy to serve as target drones for the Navys anti-aircraft systems.  After these remotely piloted vehicles (RPVs) service was discontinued they, like most other items, gathered dust in hangers and scrap yards and so became derelicts.  A few of these RPVs found their way to the Airforce  Museum.  Two years ago, four scholars, who are members of the Friends of the SAAF Museum, were given the task to restore one of these RPVs.  This aircraft is now ready to be exhibited.  It is remarkable that despite the fact that these four boys had no formal technical training in the restoration of aircraft, did an excellent job.  All the costs involved in the restoration were borne by these boys them selves.
