There were 17 students and three teachers from the history department who came to receive exposure regarding the South African National Defense Force. Thuso Thebe High is a secondary school based in Tlakwameng in  the North West. They are located in Vryburg.

After a presentation of the capabilities of 28 Squadron the students had an opportunity to fly in a C-130BZ.  The aircraft flew in the Waterkloof airspace doing several touch and goes to give all the students opportunity to view the cockpit during the flight. The visit was a great success , meeting all the objectives set out by the school and giving lasting memories to the students as for most of them it was their first opportunity fly.
