Hennenman Air Crash Memorial (Alberton)

This memorial was photographed by Clinton Hattingh in 2016 and is at the site of the former Newmarket race course.

A Dakota, on its way to Johannesburg crashed near Hennenman in the Free State on 12/04/1988, killing 13 South Africa jockeys and 10 trainers and horse racing officials.

The former Newmarket race course has since been demolished and a race course themed mall now occupies the site.

 

There is also a memorial at the Turffontein Race Course.
