Flygvapenmuseum – Swedish Air Force Museum – part 2 – more foreign planes

Some other foreign WWII-planes

B4 or Hawker Hart. Some were used in early war, and four were sent to the Finnish Winter War. This one is painted as one such.

J8 or Gloster Gladiator. Bought from the UK before the war. 12 served during the Winter War, and this one is painted as one of those.

S14 or Fieseler Fi 156 Storch. Two bought in 38, and another six German ones emergency landed during the war and was used afterwards.

B3 or Junkers Ju 86. Bought before WWII, and this is the only surviving Ju 86 in the world. Too bad I didn’t take more pictures of it.

S6 or Fokker CV-E. 14 bought from Holland in the late 20:s, and a further 35 were licence-built in Sweden.

J9 or Seversky Republic EP-1. 60 bought in 1940 from the USA.

J26 or P51D Mustang – around 100 surplus planes bought after the war, and 93 of them sold in 1953 to Israel, the Dominican Republic and Nicaragua. This plane was sold to Israel but bought back in -66.

More to come....


  1. I have been enjoying these posts. Many thanks for these excellent photos of some truly rare aircraft. I have never visited Sweden andnthismis now on my list of reasons to go there.

  2. I'm happy you like it. This is an truly excellent museum, well worth a trip if you rin the vicinity.
    If you ever go to Sweden and the Stockholm area, give me an indication, and we could meet.
