Flygdag på F10 Ängelholm, 1995, Draken

Swedish Draken fighter. How we managed to stay neutral during the Cold War. Read more about my visit this summer, to the F10 Royal Air Force Museum here.



And more from 2018: "Not an eye is dry" watching this unique formation of Swedish-built aircraft, including the Tunnan, Draken, Viggen and Gripen.

What a (Saab) story.

Was a Volvo fighter jet the first to have an ejection seat as standard equipment?

Bada bing...

But seriously folk....

TheDraken was a brilliant design - way ahead of the times with that compound sweep in the wing. Not done elsewhere I think until the similar concept appeared in the more blended looking wing plan of the Concorde SST.
