The physical presence of the SAAF in the Border War in Namibia was presumed to take place in relative peacefulness during Operation Agree. The unexpected invasion of SWAPO cadres on 1 April 1989 (the Nine Days’ War) changed the military scene radically and caused the SAAF to find itself once more in the midst of serious hostilities. After the hostilities had been ended the last task of the SAAF was to withdraw graciously from a war zone that had been the home of thousands of air force men for 23 years.
