Draken centre stage at Swedish exhibition

The distinctive jet is the showpiece of a recently opened exhibition, while in Spain a retired Falcon is on the move

A Saab J 35J Draken is the mainstay of a new exhibition at the Swedish Air Force Museum. The display at the Linköping attraction focuses on the Cold War, highlighting aircraft that served in the decades prior to the air force’s current Gripen-equipped era. It opened to the public late last year.

In other recent news, Dassault Falcon 20ECM TM.11-3/472-03 has been moved into a shelter at Spain’s Torrejón air base where the retired electronic countermeasure jet is likely to be used by a technical school. It’s one of two Falcons once used by the Spanish Air & Space Force from 1994 to 2020. The other example, TM.11-4/472-04 is with the Museo del Aire. With thanks to Lennart Berns and Roberto Yáñez
