SAAF Black and White Historical Photo's

From my collection of South African Air Force Black and White Images. 

My late cousin, Nick Barkhuizen was a photographer with the SAAF. 

He flew in Canberras during the Border War. I think I got these from him.

 I'm not sure if these are his work, or reprints of photographs taken by somebody else. 
Any help in attributing them correctly will be appreciated. 
I also have some large format colour photos, possibly taken by Herman Potgieter, 
which I'll post when I find a scanner big enough.
