Saab Viggen Waddington 2014
Saab 37 Viggen display at Waddington airshow 5th July 2014.
VIGGEN. . . BY SAAB! (airshowvision)
Here is one of the most awesome warplanes of the Cold War - the SAAB Viggen fighter and attack jet of the Swedish Air Force - this one the sole remaining airworthy example from the Swedish Historic Flight. Sweden was neutral in the Cold War but was in a vunerable position in the World and as such developed a huge air force to defend itself from both the Russians and the Americans as a precaution. This display is from the Waddington Airshow in Lincolnshire, England in July 2014, and was very much one of the highlights of the day.
Saab 9-3 Viggen
1999 SAAB 9-3 Viggen (2.3 ltr turbo) with 3" JT cat-back Exhaust and Saabflight ECU. Power gains achieved without increasing base-Boost above standard. These third and fourth gear pullaways were recorded on a private facility (the limited length of which constrained the speeds reached) 0.38 'g' achieved in third gear. NB. UK spec vehicle so speedometer reads in miles per hour.
