Nordic Airshow 18-19 June 2011

Postby Bjorn on Wed 22 Jun 2011, 10:04 pm

Nordic Airshow took place at F21 wing, Kallax, Luleå. This event is the Swedish Armed Forces’ main airshow and was intended to highlight the cooperation between the nordic air forces, Cross Border Training. Therefore we had guests from Norway and Finland who were kind enough to bring some F-18s and F-16s to blend with the otherwise usual suspects at swedish airshows.
Pictures below are a mix from the spotters day on Saturday and the show on Sunday.
I hope you enjoy the pictures, and if you would like to see more from the event there will be pictures available on my website shortly.

A great set with some fine machines I must say. The first one, last two, head-on C-17 and all of the Draken ( :rock: ) shots stand out for me.

Excellent, 9, 14, 24 and 39 are superb shots :clap: :clap: :clap:

The Draken and Lansen are stunning jets, would love to get the chance to photograph them in the UK someday :cool:

They are both limited to flying displays within Sweden (not sure why though), so if you want to see them you'll probably have to plan a trip to Sweden ;)

Thanks a lot for your positive response!
The last two of Tunnan and Lansen were taken quite late when they were leaving for home after the show. I liked the light at that moment.

Here are a few more of the popular Draken:
