Huge picture dump today.











































Look carefully in two of the shelters.



We're hoping someone can read foreign for these pictures.



















At a glance, it seems to be Swedish to me, the foreign text.........
I will take a better look later and try to translate it (now that will be fun since I know diddly about aircrafts and their parts
)

P.S.
I've looked at a few using "View Image", but the text is still hard to read. Any chance of viewing enlarged photos?
D.S.

You're right it's swedish ... Second image from the bottom 'trycktankning' means pressure refuelling.

It's a Saab Draken that is one display at the Mojave Air and Space Port. I'm in the process of uploading the originals on a hosting site so they should be bigger.

Hope it make any sense and is of any help

It's a big help, thanks! We could figure out some of it, based on where it was, and what it appeared to relate to, but were curious about most of it.

Since I know nada about aircrafts (apart from how to jump out of perfectly good ones) I wish I could find a Tech-Manual, that would make it a lil' bit easier.....

Feel free to ask and I'll do my best to translate it............

What, I'd really like to know, is what genius designed the plane, and thought this was a good idea:



That six prong plug, with the three prong plug next to it is for external power. It's a large plug, as you can see from the pin placement/size. It's also a long, six cable, copper lined cord that goes to it, and is heavy as hell. I can't tell you how many times I either fell on my butt, or almost fell dragging it, or had it just say "no", and not be able to move it anymore.

And on this thing, you have to drag it to the aircraft, and then lift it straight up in the air, going around the two strut supports.

It was a toss up between the SRB, and the Alfalfa Impact Study for me.

Remember SAAB made (crappy) cars before they started to make airplanes........... could be something "left over" for let's say jumper cables (????)


Tell you what, I'm gonna look for an E-mail address to the Air Force museum and if I find one I'll mail 'em the photos and see if they can be of some help.

That would be awesome. It was really cool to get into the airplane and see all that detail close up. A lot of static displays you can barely get close to let alone stick your head up into the guts.

I've just emailed 'em this pic, but since it's 1637 H over here, I guess I can't expect a reply (if any) until earliest monday.

I'll do my best to be of (a VERY non-tech) help......

I only been to the museum once myself, to watch the Catalina and the DC 3 shot down by the pesky Soviets in the 1950's, but there's alot (from a swedish viewpoint) to watch there.....

Thanks for that! I really appreciate it.


Don't mention it, glad I can be of some assistance.

Oh, btw. that website you talked about earlier, will you put up a link to it or is that against ATS policy?

Yeah, I'll link them. I'm having Internet issues through the work access point so I might have to wait to get them up but I'll put them up and link to them as soon as I can.

A minor setback......
I just got an email back from the museum, their "Draken guy" is on vacation (didn't say for how long tho), but they also said they would get back to me........

That's cool. We can be patient and wait. It'll give me a little more time to get to a truck stop with a good connection to upload the pics.
