Swedish Airforce Airshow Malmen AFB

Hi all, Just got back from a great long weekend in Sweden taking in the Swedish Airforce show held at Malmen airbase.

The weather gods were kind to us although the sun was facing you most of the day so photography was challenging but the forecast said rain so we were very lucky indeed.
I make no apologies for posting so many from a show that had aircraft in it that I thought I would never see fly.One downside was the cancelation of the Viggen, but we are used to that by now.
Here are a few shots from a great show,nice to see something different for a change.

A very nice set.

Good to see you out and about.

How did you like Sweden? Did you find it expensive?

Nice set of shots. Great angle and light on the Saab 340 and the Draken's a bit special too. :rock:

Wow so many nice comments thanks chaps, it was a great show to attend and the fine weather along with some rare (for me) aircraft made it all worthwhile.

How did you like Sweden? Did you find it expensive?

At around £6.00 for a bottle of lager just under a pint yes..... :grin: but hey ho it was only a short weekend, still hope you make it to RIAT Ian.

can we have some more please


Three more and the rest will eventually make it onto my site soon.

This one is photoshopped to bits but he did tend to stay quite a long way out, but you get the idea.

And finally this was a bit of a suprise, but a nice one all the same.

Thanks for looking.... :smile:
