SK60

Nils Schylström and SK60 will participate at Flygfesten!
Before the pilots of the Swedish Armed Forces fly JAS 39 Gripen they have spent many hours side by side with an instructor in a SK 60, or Saab 105 as the planet is called in its civilian version. The two-engine skateboard has been the foundation of all flight training for pilots since the 1960s.

Gyrocopter

Autogyro – a hybrid of airplane and helicopter (also called gyrocopter, gyroplane, autogyro). The first gyrocopter was invented at the beginning of the 19th century, but since then it has undergone many improvements to become today a so-called modern gyrocopter, today it is among the most reliable and safe aircraft. When you fly a gyrocopter, the rotor is rotated by the air coming from below so that it gets a carrying force.

Three ship formation

The Douglas DC-3 is one of the world's most produced transport and passenger aircraft. The prototype flew as early as December 22, 1935. It was developed from the DC-2 as a passenger and mail transport aircraft. A total of just over 16,000 DC-3s were produced, the majority for military use.

The P-51 Mustang is one of the real classics of World War II. It was built as a hunt-, reconnaissance- and bomb aircraft. Its primary task was to escort and defend allied bombers on the way across Germany and back to England again. Of the approximately 16,000 Mustangs that were manufactured, nearly 300 Mustangs have been preserved today, but just over a hundred are counted as airworthy.

Helicopter 5

The Air Force Museum's helicopters from Linköping participate with two HKP-5 flown by David Björkqvist and Alexander Jacobs. HKP-5 was the defense's main training helicopter from the mid-1980s until the end of the 1990s, when this helicopter system was phased out.

HKP-5 is very manoeuvrable due to its small size and can be tactically flown at low and using the terrain to avoid detection. The rotor diameter and length also means that the helicopter can land on small surfaces.

In 1950, Sweden realized that a hunting plan was needed to intercept the new nuclear bombing aircrafts. The aircraft would be equipped with radar and it would be able to fly faster than the sound. In addition, it would have a very good climbing ability, long range, endurance and ability to carry the weapons required for the mission


Vampire

Vampire was one of the earliest jet aircraft launched in 1946. It became very popular and over 4000 aircraft were manufactured. Sweden, Norway and Finland have had Vampire in their Air Force.

It was also a Vampire who was the first jet airplane to take off and landed on a carrier ship and in 1948 a new high record of 18 119 meters was set up and later in 1948 Vampire became the first jet aircraft flying across the Atlantic.
