Sven we went to Sweden - Magnificent Malmen

Sven we went to Sweden - Magnificent Malmen

Postby zigzag on Sat 17 Sep 2016, 7:11 am

A few images from a great couple of days in the company of ST24 at the Swedish Airforce 90th Anniversary show at Malmen in August. What a great show, the Swedish Airforce were superb hosts :worship: , the spotters facilities were excellent, sunny weather up to Saturday (although the near gale force wind that day made shooting much tricker than it should have been and resulted in less keepers than the sunny conditions would suggest), early access on Sunday, no security, no hassle, treated like adults, and all for free. Add in a great turnout from home team, a dash of splinter camo, an exciting assault demo, a few foreign fast jets, and for me the finest aircraft flying anywhere in the mighty Viggen and this was a wonderful event to attend. :win:

Thanks also to Geoff for the company, the taxi service, and the pondering of the universe over a beer or two. :dizzy:

Fantastic set of photos. I didn't realise the B.17 was still flying.

Great set. Swedes have some really impressive bits of kit.

Great to see the B 17 about. Haven't seen shots with the iconic "cricket pads" for years. :up: :up:

Thank you very much for these very fine shots of rare aircraft.

Make me feel paying a visit to Sweden ... in 10 years ?

Fantastic! They are as good you described. You've convinced me, absolutely no question whatsoever. When it's on next, count me in.

What a nice change for enthusiasts/photographers/spotters to be treated as adults. Quite a different experience to being with you on an open public footpath in early July this year.

Thanks for the kind comments from those of you who I know and dont know, much appreciated.

Perhaps Malmen was overshadowed by Zeltweg the week after but its an event I thoroughly recommend.

Stunning stuff, what fabulous looking aircraft the Draken and Viggen are, but for some reason my eye is most drawn to the climbing Safir shot.

Looked a great trip. :up: :clap:

Great stuff mate, t'was indeed a good few days. The battle scene is a great capture - one that I failed to get due to my battery problems (on that note - I hope none of these are the ones I shot with your spare body!! :tongue: :whistle: :grin: ) As you say Zeltweg took the sting out of this one a bit, particularly with Sunday's poor lighting conditions but it certainly stood up as a worthy one to attend, especially when combined with the fabulous museum too. :up:

It would definitely have hurt if you stayed on for the Saturday night in Zaragoza, particularly at 1-60 euro a glass of Rioja. :shock:
