Pretoria - Various aircraft flew over the Union Buildings in Pretoria on Saturday in various formations for the inauguration of President Jacob Zuma.

Five flight transport aircraft were the first planes to make their way over.

Program directors Justice Minister Jeff Radebe and African National Congress deputy secretary general Jesse Duarte introduced the formations.

“The formation will fly over in the sign of a 20 to symbolise 20 years of democracy,” Duarte said to loud cheers as a new formation flew over.

Three large aircraft flew over before the VIP transportation aircraft. As Gripens flew over, several people cheered.

People pointed as the aircraft approached. Some had their phones and tablets out to make videos and take pictures of the flyover. - Sapa
