Just noticed that there is no silhouette of the Tunan...why might the SAF has skipped it? :-)

My guess would be that F17 didn't fly the Tunnan.

In fact that is - according to Wikipedia - the truth case, Steve.

I was just being silly, because the Tunnan is one of the very few aircraft where I could not find the slightest attractive angle. Made me giggle.... [emoji5]

From mobile hence short

Cheers,
Martin

I had never heard of the Tunnan so looked it up. You are quite right Martin, not a pretty aircraft.

I actually got to crawl over a J-29 at the now defunct Southend Aircraft Museum. It was an ex-Austrian AF example, if I remember correctly - although I could be wrong. Weird looking thing.

*UPDATE*
Just looked it up. It was a Swedish J-29 and after the demise of the Southend Museum it went to the Midlands Air Museum, where it still resides. Apparently its the only J-29 in the UK.

In comparison I find the Lansen, Draken, Viggen and Gripen very beautiful aircraft. Especially the Draken and Viggen are on my most favorite list.
