The Draken often looks like a 2D-blueprint in pictures. Fasinating shapes! 5*.

I just like this plane, more than the following J-37 and 39. And this picture has a perfect view. Saab and Sweden deserve world's respect!

Fantastic colors, "vibrant" feeling and perfect view. The best airplane picture I've seen in a long time.

J 35 Daraken-one of the SAAB fighters. There came two generations more, 37 and JAS 39 Gripen, from an industri ín just a country of 9 millions. Remarkable SAAB!!

This is still one of my favourite Swedish planes. South Africa recenty bought the Grippen but I like this one more! Why do they have to get old. Incredible colour on the picture, brilliant shot!

I've seen this before, 79-80 I was doing my military service at the swedish airforce. The turbine was started up first with a small electrical device you could hear spinning up, and quite short after that the starter turbine kicked in, producing this yellow cloud you shouldn't breathe in. After 8-10 seconds of a loud hiss it stopped, and then you heard the turbine has lighted up. J35 Draken actually looked like a big ready-to-act hawk, sitting there waiting to fly and strike...I really loved that plane. To sit in its cockpit was like taking on the jacket. You became part of the airplane. High speed on the finale, difficult to handle, but the pilots said it was fantastic to fly when you learned to handle it. But you couldn't let go of the concentration at any time, then the plane hitted you at your fingers directly... /Jozzi in Sweden
