Saab SK.60

Saab SK.60

Saab SK.60 a Swedish aircraft from the 1960s. It is powered by two jet engines with a total power over 25 000 HP. Primarily used for training military pilots, the SK.60 will be taking a well-deserved retirement this year after almost 60 years of service. This will be the last Saab’s display outside Sweden and second to last in history before it retires, so we’re honoured to see it!

The pilot Captain Nils Schylström is an absolute star of the largest aviation events. Last year he won prestigious The King Hussein Memorial Sword award for the most polished and precise display at the Royal International Air Tattoo. It is a great honour that we will be able to admire him!
