Some more misc images of the most beautiful aircraft in the world.  :)









When we in Sweden says that Viggen used roadbases and regular roads to land on. This is what we mean. Photo taken fom above one of these bases, as you can see, the road is not very wide. Put things in perspective.  ;D


Taxiing on the road.

I love that jet (I love most Saab jets). I always wondered about the shrouded exhaust nacelle. Was that to help mask the hot exhaust signature somewhat? I've never seen that on another fighter.
Wars are won by carrying the 'heavy iron' downtown!

It houses the thrust reverser, see model below.

Patrik, do you have a proper photo of the real thing?

Yes sir, i do! Nice looking model btw.  ;D

It is as Niels is saying. When all three "flaps" are in the closed position. The jetstream is forced forward through three gaps in the fuselage. One on each side and one underneath.

Forgot to mention. That image of the two Viggens with the four SU27´s. That one was new, i have not seen it before.  :D

Some more oldies....







SF37 on its low altitude mission.




Salvage operation of a SF37. Crashed into the baltic on 1981-08-29. Pilot ejected safly. Fuel leakage caused a fire inside the fuselage so the engine quit.

Wow, love the first one and the low level SF!

That image of the two Viggens with the four SU27´s.

It's 6x MiG-29...the Swifts in their old colours. Sorry, the filename is incorrect... I rarely change filenames, because I got all pics sorted in hundreds of directories.

A few more from my harddrive.

This first photo shows the men who created my favourite aircraft of all times.
