The first batch of photos were taken at Swartkop in 1999, at the first public display of the Silver Falcons in Astras.

The following photos were also taken at Swartkop, but on 15th September 2001 - not a good day weather-wise, with a wind chill factor of -8°C and terribly overcast.

This was the last public display by the Silver Falcons team leader, Colonel Dave Knusen. He retires at the end of 2001.
