The Swedish Air Force Museum, Linkoping

Explore a collection of over 50 military aircraft at The Swedish Air Force Museum, and delve into complementary exhibits of engines, instruments, uniforms, literature, and photographs. The museum opened in 1984 on the former training field of the country's first flying school, which was opened by Sweden's first aviator Carl Cederström in 1912. Home to the sole surviving Junkers Ju 86 and a renowned DC-3 shot down in 1952, the museum also exhibits pioneer equipment in aviation such as an SK 1 Albatros, M 1 Nieuport, and B 1 Bréguet. The museum spans three levels with a small outdoor exhibit. On the upper level, learn firsthand about the modern JAS 39 Gripen, a single-engine multirole fighter aircraft, via flight simulators.
