Can you imagine the surprised when Captain Niklas Sandström called the Dutch Aviation museum Aviodrome for directions to Lelystad Airport to deliver a Saab Viggen? On Friday the 13th of January (ya, why not) the AJSH-37 arrived at the Aviodrome.

Five year ago, Aviodrome requested a obsolete aircraft put out off service with the Swedish Air force. No reply was given for five year .. until Niklas called, where to deliver a AJSH-37 Viggen. The AJSH variant is a photo reconnaissance version, which makes use a a photo pod and not the photo nose, used in other photo variants.

The 37901 / 51 belonged to F21 and was based at Luleå-Kallax, Sweden.
