In 1979, the SADF established a highly clandestine unit, called Delta40 or D40 in short. This ultrasecret unit was tasked with the dirty work of “disappearing” hundreds of ANC, PAC and Swapo actvisits.

With the help of Project Coast, D40 poisoned political activists and prisoners of war before dumping their bodies into the ocean from a light aircraft. Even some of the SADF’s own special force members became victims of these ‘death flights’ when they threatened to expose the secret work of D40. D40 was renamed Barnacle and eventually became the well known Civil Cooperation Bureau (CCB), but the existence and operations of D40 remained almost unknown until now. Its role in statesanctioned murders was well kept secret.

Seasoned investigative journalist Michael Schmidt interviewed veteran D40, Barnacle and CCB operatives, as well as Recce commanders and doubleagents, to piece together this topsecret history. With Death Flight he uncovers black ops kept hidden for decades.
