View Full Version : Swedish airforce museum

07-01-2007, 03:58 PM
Hi, Although I'm not a frequent poster on this wonderful forum I want to ask you, and especially the Swedish members, a question.

In about 3 weeks I will be going to Sweden on my holiday and will be visiting the neighbourhood of Linkoping. On the internet I've found a museum there http://www.sfhm.se/FlygDefaultPage____26.aspx
which I planned to visit.

Can someone please tell me what to expect from it (any interesting or rare planes to be seen) and how much time it takes to see it all. Although my wife understands my interest in planes I don't want to bore her to much http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif

If the museum is worth a visit I will post some pictures. Are there any other places in Sweden worth a visit concerning planes?

Best regards,

Yes, from what I heard. They have the Ju86, the only one left on the globe IIRC. Jutocsa would be very glad if someone could take 1-5GB of pictures of the Ju86. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif If you would be willing to do that, send a PM to Jutocsa or me.

Anyway, have fun in Sweden, it's a wonderful country!

Been there a few times. It's not that large, but it nevertheless contains some very interesting types, from early Swedish fighters, to early jets and some newer designs. Well worth a visit. I once drove nearly 400 kms in one direction just to visit it!

07-01-2007, 05:49 PM
Well, in that case I will go and visit the museum. I will be going to Sweden on the 20th of juli and about a week later we will be at the museum. As for the pictures.... It shound'nt be a problem with my new Panasonic DMC-FZ50 10 mp camera http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

Any other interesting sites to see in Sweden that we should'nt miss?

Here are the planes you can see at Linköpings Flygvapenmuseum.
last time I visited, I got to take color pics of the whole Seversky P-35s cocpit interior and I saw a glimpse of the Mig15 standing outside in a restrikted area.

Photgraphic requests are being taken.
So gentlemen, any preferences?

07-03-2007, 02:00 AM
They have a mosquito and its in storage! A crime indeed!

07-03-2007, 02:16 AM
The Mosquito is listed as "delar" which mean parts.

Hey and welcome to Sweden...

You will be able to see the Gloster Gladiator (designation J8 in Sweden as in Jakt 8, Fighter 8).

This particular aircraft is the sole surviving J8 of the Gladiators in Swedish Airforce and one of the 12 that was sent to Finland during Finnish Winterwar together with the Swedish Volunteer unit F19.

Also interesting to know is that this airplane was used as a "template" making the J8 flyable in the sim. If you get the opportunity to view inside the cockpit (not able to by "default" but you might be able to if you ask nicely), you will immediately recognize the cockpit from IL2.... . we spent a good deal of time inside the cockpit during the research for this model..

Indeed this airplane is one of a kind.. the best preserved ORIGINAL Gladiator in the world, and they aren't that many left


You will also be able to see three other nice imported planes that served in the late 30ies and early 40ies in the Swedish airforce, the Fiat CR 42 (J11), the Republic Seversky EP-1 (J9) and the Reggiane Re 2000 Falco 1 (J20)




and of course the all Swedish designs of J21 and J22.



I have always found the J22 to be a very beautiful airplane...

Welcome mate

hi paddy,

in case you are slightly interested in naval history i would recommend to visit the Wasa in Stockholm. If you have a family with kids perhaps Skansen is a good idea as well. It is a big open air museum, just google it, they have a website.

have fun

07-06-2007, 03:17 AM
Stockholm and the Wasa is definitly on our list of places to visit and things to see. So is IKEA Stockholm. It should be the largest in the world. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/35.gif
I'll google Skansen as well, sounds interesting.
It seems like we got more to see than we have days in Sweden http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/blink.gif

Surfed around TV channels yesterday and stopped to SVTEuropa because of a landing D.H.(Tiger?)Moth showing there, seemed a modern show. Was about surf on but then a Caproni bomber taxied by the Moth, never seen that one in colors. Went checking and seems the program was Swedish drama 'Tre Kärlekar'. I found out that Caproni was a replica by filming crew. Is it the same S 16 Caproni Ca313 replika in the museum?

07-06-2007, 11:39 AM
I believe the Caproni replica is under restoration somewhere outside the museum. They had a very bad reputation. Maybe for a reason, many crashed and burned, a friend of mines father was killed in one of them.
The visit to Malmslätt is worth the effort as is the Wasa museum in Stockholm. If you want a tour in the archipelago or sightseeing on the waters of Stockholm pm me and I will arrange some free tickets for you.



07-07-2007, 06:15 AM
Viking, check your pm.


07-07-2007, 10:36 AM
This from outside the museum last (2 years a go) time I visited.



And tickets are ready Paddy!
