The Windsock is an ubiquitous feature of almost any airport --- small or large. Share your photos of windsocks, past and present, of Southern African airports (and elsewhere in the world)!

North Sea: I LOVE your photo of the Bristol Fighter! Thank you :D (I landed on that airfield back in 1965, when learning to fly -- thanks to my CFI for the visit)
