It could well be, I think there is one as a Gate guard on that base too.
I also notice Three DC3 Dacota's there too.
I know there is the world's last airworthy English Electric Lightning that flies in South Africa. Could it too be based here ?

Yep, you are right.

They have two Lightnings!

Thunder City operates the last two serviceable twin engined two-seater (side-by-side) supersonic cold war interceptor Lightnings in the world, together with a single seater F6 that is primarily used for aerobatic displays at air shows.
