My favorite warbird of all time.

stunning pic.

A visitor from Germany posted Sat March 7, 2009:
I like this jet!
Good shot!

A visitor from United States posted Fri June 6, 2008:
No war bird ever built has a more awesome outline than the Viggen. The bottom profile on the outboard bird captures this perfectly. Viggen, thy name is beauty. Thank you, Jan, for THIS memorable moment.

"Fantastic shot but i wish air forces took a bit more pride in there apearance these to need a good scrub."

On the contrary, I think the worn appearance of the fighters gives this shot a lot of character and makes it much more interesting to look at. Gives it a real "Cold War" feel. If the planes were shiny and new-looking it would be a much less dramatic photo (relatively speaking). Nice work!

Just WOW. OMG, I'm gonna miss beautiful SAAB Viggen.

Lovely colours ,great sharpness ,action!

A visitor from United States posted Sun April 2, 2006:
Great ballance of both sides of a fantastic wing profile. Going to miss this baby! The background is pretty too. Good contrast with the snow.

A visitor from Sweden posted Sun March 26, 2006:
Reminds me I was skiing near Östersund and was lucky enough to see two of these pass by in the valley below me. Not THIS close though...

A visitor from Chile posted Mon March 6, 2006:
An incredible fighter. The Viggen, a cold war era fighter; a steel knight of the three crowns kingdom. Awesome.

A visitor from United States posted Wed March 1, 2006:
Now that IS a great air-to-air shot, not by some photographer renting a Cessna and flying over an airport 6000 feet above, taking takeoff or landing "air-to-ground" shots and saying that they are air to air. Good work, Jan, on a true great series of real air to air Photos!!!!

Simply Beautiful! I am very envious of you. I do air to air also but this is sublime! My hat is off to you!!

A visitor from Germany posted Tue January 31, 2006:
Wow... i love that pic. nice aircraft, nice landscape and lots of details visible :)

A visitor from Australia posted Mon January 30, 2006:
A timeless photo people could look at this photo 50 years from now and think it was just taken yesterday long live viggen...

A visitor from France posted Thu January 19, 2006:
You can do everything with Photoshop ! No, I'm just kidding... ^^ Great great shot, of one of my favorite aircraft.

Congratulations and thanks !

A visitor from Germany posted Wed January 18, 2006:
This should be in the Pirelli-calendar ;-) An unequalled shot, it's better than perfect.

A visitor from United States posted Fri January 6, 2006:
I love the A/C and the Background.

A visitor from Mexico posted Thu January 5, 2006:
Wow, what a beautiful close up, a good memory for this formidable and veteran fighter

A visitor from Slovakia posted Thu December 29, 2005:
Perfect clear photo of one of the most beautiful plane ever built and above beautiful country.
Simply - I like position of camera relatively to both planes, 2nd planes gives aspect of movement and background gives you feeling of fly.

Bye Viggen

Fantastic shot but i wish air forces took a bit more pride in there apearance these to need a good scrub.

A visitor from Philippines posted Mon December 12, 2005:
Its one of the most impressive air to air shots i have ever seen!

A visitor from United States posted Sun December 4, 2005:
5 stars for this very professional picture!

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Sun December 4, 2005:
Looks like Hasselblad quality to me? So you stood on top of an Arctic circle mountain and these Viggens flew past! Thanks for sharing it at 1600 pixels. When I posted my grainy old shot of a Viggen at Farnborough 72 I had no idea it was just a week til the Viggen was withdrawn, M West, UK

A visitor from Spain posted Sun December 4, 2005:
