Amazing view (looking forward) from the partially stripped-down cargo area of "Louis Blériot", KLM's last 747-200 (PH-BUK / UK-027, cn 21549/336), now retired at Aviodrome in Lelystad.
Perfectly blending of the "splinter"-camouflage of this Viggen with the Dutch landscape. The Viggen, piloted by Niklas Sandström, is taxiing towards its final resting place: The Aviodrome museum in Lelystad in The Netherlands.
Just after arrival at Lelystad Aviodrome, the pilot - Niklas Sandström - of the Viggen is giving first safety instructions to the representative of the Aviodrome museum.
Saab AJSH37 Viggen from the Swedish Air Force, posing proudly after its final "full stop" at the Aviodrome airport of Lelystad. Now that this beauty is retired, it will spend the rest of its life in the museum.
