Hi everyone!

The Swedish air force main airshow will take place on August 25th at Uppsala just north of Stockholm.
The organisers are expecting 120 000 visitors, that would make it one of Swedens biggest events.

Not much information have been released yet but here is what I know as of now.

Confirmed participants:

Swiss Air Force Super Puma Display Team

Swafhf:
AJS 37 Viggen
J35 Draken
J32 Lansen x2
J29 Tunnan
J34 Hawker Hunter

This sounds really interesting. Has anyone visited this venue before who could comment on the setting?

It hasn't been an airshow at Uppsala in the past 17 years so hopefully someone who went there can answer that.

This is an odd venue as its not an active flying base now, home to the Air Force School. Runway is 21/03 so same as Waddington with crowd on the Eastern side though the administration area with static etc is a fair way South. Given the bizarre set up at Malmen anythings possible!!

There certainly doesn't seem to be a lot of information around online for this show, other than a Facebook page which I can't see as I'm not a FB user. A couple of days in Sweden does sound nice though so I've booked a hotel.

Normally, non-swedish participants are very rare at SWAF shows.
A weather forecast is a forecast and just that

Well we've had more and more international acts The last couple of years. Amongst others the breitling wingwalkers, redbull BO105, Czech Hind(alien paint scheme), baltic bees, Breitling Jet team, finnish F-18 hornet, danish F-16, finnish NH90 and PC 7 team.

So fingers crossed there will be something foreign this year aswell.
