Couldn't agree more. It keeps them grounded. The same goes for politicians. They need real world experience among people in a career first and not just study politics at university or come from the world of PR.
Two Norwegian F-35 landed on a public road in Finland, quickly re-fueled while the engines were running and took off again. This is the first time any F-35 anywhere has done this and I thought only Swedish SAAB JAS 39 Grippen could use public roads as runways. I think the war in Ukraine has shown us how useful it can be to be able to decentralize the air force in wartime.
Naah... that's just a bunch of Swedish propaganda! They like to be soooo special!
Here's another one... Not quite Gripen ;) Could be Bond though!
The Swedes do like to brag about their "guerilla jet fighters", but I'm sure the Ukranians would love to get a squadron of JAS Grippens.
Five conscripts and an officer in two vehicles can refuel and service the plane on a motorway in the forrest, you know ....
Yup! I know. We've been doing this road base thingy since the Winter war, although back then it was more common to fly from frozen lakes than from highways.
We don't have many straight roads ... 😂
That's no way to think. You should not let yourself be restricted by external factors! 🤣
The captured Russian tank wasn't working - so the Ukrainian officer called tech support in Russia!
