Absolutely magnificent. Brings tears to my eyes.
I'm so pleased that SwAFHF has got one flying again, looking forward to see it in the air this summer.

What an amazing pic! Fantastic pic of a fantastic plane. 5* from me.

A visitor from Singapore posted Wed August 29, 2007:
Woo-hoo! One of the most Beautiful jet fighter and camo schemes ever to grace the skies .

I concur with the french guy, its also a Very difficult paint scheme to apply for us modelers. Someday when I pick up the courage, I'll have a Viggen (this camo scheme) sitting in my showcase :-)

A visitor from Sweden posted Tue September 19, 2006:

Excellent photo of both upper and lower surfaces of a fantastic aircraft

A visitor from United States posted Fri January 27, 2006:
How sad to see these beauties go! They look so elegant, yet tough. -One of my favorite aircraft in the world! Truly a beautiful photo!

A visitor from France posted Thu January 19, 2006:
What to say ? One of my favorite ever built aircraft stop in motion in a perfect way... Showing us the magnificence of its design and its "goddamn scheme" so hard to paint for a model maker ^^.

A great photo, thanks to you for sharing.

A visitor from Sweden posted Tue January 17, 2006:
Wonderful shot of Sweden;). Lovely big forests, mountains in the far background and two, powerful,roaring Viggens flying proudly over their country in the warm summer air;). Thank you for your service Viggen!

A visitor from Sweden posted Tue January 17, 2006:
A previous comment was:"This particular Viggen was a present from the Swedish Air Force for a small aviation museum at the Thalerhof-Airport in Graz. I also had the opportunity to take a very very close look to this fascinating plane!"

That day was one of many while I served my military time at the Fliegerhorst Nittner as a Fueler, and it was me who defueled the Viggen and made it ready for its last journey, namely to the museum..


A visitor from United States posted Tue January 17, 2006:
Amazing! great photo.

A visitor from United States posted Tue January 17, 2006:
This is a fantastic shot, the timing to capture the break really does it for me.
Thanks for sharing

A visitor from Finland posted Sun January 15, 2006:
Great work Jan! Marvelous machine!
Viggen-rider from Finland!

A visitor from Sweden posted Sat January 14, 2006:
I love Viggen and any photo of it means something to me. This particular one is very good, I like the forest in the background, one gets reminded of the purpose of the camopaint...

A visitor from Netherlands posted Fri January 13, 2006:
Very nice picture!!

A visitor from France posted Fri January 13, 2006:
Great picture! Great background! Five stars...

A visitor from Slovenia posted Thu January 12, 2006:
A Tokunaga-like photo, not really original but still nice.

A visitor from Finland posted Wed January 11, 2006:
Great picture

A visitor from Austria posted Sat January 7, 2006:
Really great picture! I like the contrast between the lower and upper camouflage varnish in a single shot when breaking off. And I think there can't be any discussion about the fact that the Viggen has one of the greatest in-flight-appearances of all planes ever built. I particularly love the double delta wing!
In Summer 2005 I had the honour to see a Viggen coming in for its last traffic circuit before its retirement. This was in Graz (LOWG, Austria), when I was standing on the apron and doing the preflight on my C-152(!!). What an unexpected experience and big contrast!!
This particular Viggen was a present from the Swedish Air Force for a small aviation museum at the Thalerhof-Airport in Graz. I also had the opportunity to take a very very close look to this fascinating plane!

P.S.: Our Austrian Saab35Draken have also retired in 2005. The last official formation was presented at the Air Power 2005 in Zeltweg.

A visitor from New Zealand posted Sat January 7, 2006:
What an awesome picutre of a great aircraft. It has a facsinating shape and to have captured top and bottom sides in one shot makes it a masterpiece. Well done!!!!!!!!!!

A visitor from Australia posted Sat January 7, 2006:
Thanks Jan for one of the greatest photos of one of the greatest designs of the 20th century!

A visitor from Mexico posted Thu January 5, 2006:
The SAAB-35 Draken was replaced by the 37 Viggen, and now it will be replaced by the JAS-39 Gripen. In my opinion, the greatest was the Viggen. And yours? T.B.

A visitor from Spain posted Mon December 26, 2005:
Superb picture Jan... simply great !!!

A visitor from Poland posted Wed December 14, 2005:
