This is one of the oldest military jet designs still in use today. Not for much longer though.
Is a fantasticship! I always found quite curious the shape of the air intakes, though... but I loved it!
A real classic. It has been one of my favorites ever since I was a little kid. I like the head-on perspective.
The US takes lots of great planes out of service every year...mostly to create a need for state-of-the-art replacements to keep the defense contractors happy. The F-8 Crusader, F-4 Phantom, and others were still perfectly good planes when they had their retirement parties. I'm glad there are some countries that use their defense equipment for the maximum allowable service life instead of bowing to political pressures from the likes of Boeing, Lockheed, etc...
oldie but a goodie! i think Austria still has some on active service! those who did buy these birds certainly got their money,s worth and more. perhaps SAAB might consider cutting some metal and building some new ones......! a fanjet powered Draken could still be a viable machine for a long time to come!
That's an interesting shot of a Swedish Draken. It's first flight was in 1955.
Very good shot, really!
