Malmen 02-03.06.12

Post by DeanW »

I spent the weekend at a very grey and chilly Malmen. This was my first foreign show, so despite the naff weather and distant display line for the jets it was really enjoyable. The memory of walking over the crest of a hill and seeing the Viggen, Draken, Lansen, Hunter, Tunnan and 105 lined up next to each other is one that will stay with me for a while!

So, in no particular order, here's a selection from an exciting weekend...

I can't wait to go back next year for the Gothenburg show (hopefully in better weather too!) :biggrin:

Very very nice Dean. Loving the Draken take off and the taxiway lineup shots... not forgetting the wonky Tunnan as well.

Very nice set, Dean, I love pictures that are a bit "outside the box".

Great set Dean - obviously the Viggen and Draken are highlights, but I really like the composition of the four Gripens on the taxiway too. :up:

Wow stunning! So many good ones. Like how those NH-90s show off their yellow and blue "three crowns"... :king:

Far too many to pick a favourite but a couple of excellent shots in that lot.

Glad you enjoyed :smile:

Superb. Particularly like the helo & flare man and the leaning Tunnan.

Fantastic set, the poor Tunnan looks a little unsteady on her legs there...... :smile:

Fantastic shots, especially like the Gripens taxiing head-on and the Lansen/Hunter past the ALS. Have to chuckle a little at the blown-tire Tunnan; it looks drunk :grin:

I don't think there is a tyre problem...looks more like a fast taxiing turn on a slightly inclined taxiway??

A fine set indeed, the PC7 line-up with all the reflected lights on the wet taxiway steals the show for me!

Correctamundo. The aircraft was taxiing at quite a speed and leant at quite an angle when turning on to an adjacent taxiway!

Ah, thought I read somewhere it blew a tire and assumed that was it. Correction duly noted :)

It still looks like it had a bit too much ale from the "barrel"...

No you are correct! The aircraft blew a tyre on landing after its solo on the Saturday, blocking the runway for about half an hour before while they replaced the tyre. :smile:
