      There is also a cut-away display Viggen.


      So if you ever wondered about what to find under the hood of a fighter jet...


      Cables cables cables.


      And some actuators.


      Even more cables


      And fuses.


      And even more fuses.

              To round off this visit:

              Interior of the Agusta-Bell 204B.


              One more Vampire.


              Some pilot apparel.




              And some details of a static display of a typical temporary Swedish "highway airbase".

              Thank you for looking. More information about the museum: http://www.flygmuseum.com/

                What a great thread!!! Made my day, thank you!
                I particularly like the A-26. Why? Oh..., here's why. I had the pleasure to get to know "Sugarland Express" when she visited Kristiansund for an airshow in 1992.
                (In a way, this picture of me and her is several kilograms old :-) )

                  That's fascinating how everything goes around. 1992, that really is quite a long time ago - nice to see you both posing! :-)

                A Sterkoder special:



                A lot of people and stuff around, but atleast we see some more of the plane.

                  Thank you so much!
                  I see the registration is N167B, so I know it's the same plane :-)
                  When she visited Kristiansund, together with another beauty of millionare Anders K. Sæther of Oslo (a NA P-51 Mustang named 'Old Crow' ), I even got some c0ckpit ground time, while the mechanics had to order and replace a magneto in the left hand engine. She stayed at Kvernberget airport for a few days.
                  To get to the front office, we had to enter via the rear passenger door, then walk through the cabin, and stomach crawl under the wing main spar through like a fox hole to get to the front seat :-)

                      An awesome collection of aircrafts, but one in particular caught my attention... the SAS training aircraft. DO you have more images of that one? What aircraft is it?

                        Sorry, no additional good pictures of that.
                        The plane is a de Havilland DH 114 Heron. It's privately owned, but sponsored by Scandinavian Aviation Academy, http://pilotutbildning.se/
                        More here: http://www.flygmuseum.com/Flygplan/d...d-dh-114-heron
                        There is a very interesting story about the aquistation of the plane. It was bought by a Swede for a very low sum from the Ls Vegas gambling mafia...

                            Mark: #9/1 KUL KALLE is a childrens playground version of the real life North American P-51 Mustang. In Sweden, they always change the type identification on aircraft, so the P-51 is known as J26 in Sweden. The Swedish Air Force operated 161 J26s between 1945 and 1954. This particular airplanes identification was a yellow K, therefore it got callname 'Gul Kalle' (Yellow Kalle).
                            Kalle is a very much used Swedish male name, slang for Karl often. It's also the Swedish phonetic alphabet id for the letter K, where all the rest of the world use Kilo). The childrens version in #9/1 is called KUL (sound like GUL), means cool ;-)

                            The real life 'Gul Kalle' is still in flying condition in a meseum in Sweden
