    Notes 
    • Lieutenant Vincent Peter Lautenslager from 8 Squadron was Killed in Action on 12 September 1980 when his Atlas MB326K Impala Mk II, Serial No. 1074 was shot down by enemy anti-aircraft fire during close air support operations in Southern Angola. He was 23. His name and sacrifice has not been forgotten.
    • On 12-Sep-80 Lt Vince Lautenslager was on a search and destroy mission as wingman to Lt Frans Vermaak in Impala MkII's. It appeared as though his Impala had struck into the ground during the roll-in to attack a Russian made troop carrier approximately 20 km's South East of Xangongo (The Ural lorry was still burning from the attack presumably by 30mm cannon from Lt Vermaak). It is not known if he was brought down by small arms fire or flew into the ground.

      He was presumed dead in the wreckage.
