Göteborg Aero Show - SwAF Historic Flight

Article Index

Within this frame also the Hpk5 and Hpk6 helicopter presentation can be counted, though these two types are no longer in military service but privately owned. The appearance of both remembers however their military origin.

A further military highlight was the fly-in of the Hpk4 'Vertol' helicopter on Saturday midday for its final flight as it joined the Aeroseum collection after its landing. The type is in Swedish service for a very long time and is waiting for its successor NH90 to fully enter service before the last examples will finally be withdrawn.

The 'oldtimer' jet presentations were spread throughout the day with the main part being in the late afternoon. Earlier during the day the J28 Vampire took to the skies as well as the J29 Tunnan. But nothing did beat the venerable J32 Lansen as well as the J34 Hunter and J35 Draken solo displays. Especially the Draken was the highlight for many of the locals as it was not seen back in the sky for around three to four years. And what a splendid view it was to see the remarkably shaped, glossy finished, jet climbing high into the sky with its afterburner!

The same goes for the Lansen that was presented nicely with aerobatics but also two 'photo passes'. Unfortunately the sounds and smells when starting up these aircraft cannot be transported by the images...
The announced formation of the SwAFHF during the afternoon was unfortunately not presented on both days during the afternoon, but only as a formation fly-by of the Saab produced Jets (Saab 105, Tunnan, Lansen, Draken, and Gripen) when the aircraft left on Sunday after the show.
