Warbirds and Vintage Aircraft over Sweden (air-to-air)

Post by daniel-k »

Hi all,

Some air-to-airs of historic stuff in Sweden from recent years:

4 x Saab Safir
Image

2 x Harvard/Texan
Image

Supermarine Spitfire
Image

A-26 Inavder
Image

Klemm 35
Image

P-51 Mustang
Image

Saab B 17
Image


I have recently put together an illustrated book (yes a real one, printed on paper :smile: ) on the subject, called Warbirds and Vintage Aircraft over Sweden (titled “Flygande klassiker” in Swedish). Close to 400 photos included – many of them air-to-air. Summaries and captions are in English. The book may be a bit pricey with international shipping, but for anyone with interest in this specific topic - check it out. Read more and see how you can order it at http://www.daniel-k.com/flygandeklassiker

If you're into Facebook, see http://www.facebook.com/flygandeklassiker for more photos.

Cheers, Daniel

Stunning set of photos!

The Spitfire and Invader shots are sublime!

You could always post a few more for our appreciation! Any Viggens/Drakens by any chance?! :smile:

Thanks guys. Yes that is the ex-SHF Invader 'Sugarland Express' now with Nordic Warbirds.
The Draken/Viggen are a bit too modern for this specific project as I focus on pre 1950 designs - but maybe in the future... :smile:

What a fine set of images, absolutely beautiful aircraft that arguably rivals the UK warbird scene

Many thanks! :smile:

Sorry for the very compressed quality of the photos, I did a quickie and just linked them from my Facebook page.

If you like some more moving action, here is a short movie with air-to-air footage from the making of the book:
