Does any of you guys know how many countries that used SAAB Draken before they retired?
I know Denmark and Sweden did. And we were actually pretty sad when they retired a few years ago. They have been some of the best fighters we have ever had. So it was a shame to see them go.
But thankfully I see one everytime I drive past the gate to Karup Air Base. They use one for decoration now. And that is a great sight

Sorry to get off topic but did you hear about that black bear in Washington State this week that raided a bunch of coolers and ended up drinking 36 cans of Ranier beer before he passed out, he tried one Busch can then left the others

Let me point out that Austria still uses the Draaken. There are plans (and a signed contract) to replace it with the Eurofighter, but as we speak, the Draaken are still in use by the Austrian military. And no, this is neither a joke nor am I drunk.
