Awww, and I was kinda hoping to see the B-17 airliner conversion that was made in Sweden, would have been interesting to see... were some not used by Sweden as bombers as well? I think quite a few turned up there thanks to aviators fed up with the war...

 

Still, great pics!!! Awesome museum indeed!

Excellent bit of photog work. The angles you've captured are very complimentary, as is the museum lighting.

 

Looks like you had the run of the place. No random heads in any of the photos.

 

Thanks for sharing.

 

Jeff
