You’re in for a treat. Remember, you must think in Swedish.
Seriously though, it’s an airframe that’s incredibly well thought out for its very specific mission. Nothing it does avionics-wise is done in any way like other western fighters, but it’s done in a way that makes perfect sense once you understand the mindset and objectives of the Swedes that made and flew it.
It’s an awesome ride, enjoy it!
Oh, also @jross, you’re gonne want these:
Oh god I ended up in a moment like that. And not in a good way.
Well, I don’t, but if someone wanted to learn, John Candy had a unique suggested method of learning the language.
Which is why it is my favourite aircraft that I have hardly flown… I really need to take the time to learn it.
@Troll @Victork2 Yeah okay…
It was the time I was literally living and working with the english language as my primary one, and to improve I started reading every book I already had in italian, in English. It was also the high times for crime books, especially a certain MIllennium series.
Yeah you can see where this is going…
So I went, with the girl that eventually became my first wife to this very classy book store and ordered a book in German, for her, and an Asimov book in its original language.
I did peek the book cover of the first Millennium Book (The girl with the dragon tattoo) and I added happy and pimping “Oh! I’d like that one too in original language”
And the girl behind the counter smiles broadly (yes it’s a double entendre) and utter words that my first wife teased me with for uncomfortably, but justifiably so, long “Oh, do you know Swedish?”
Cue me becoming as red as a Christmas tree ornament and sheepishly adjusting my request to a more accomodating reality.
Yeah, appropriate response.
I mean I did see the funny side of it too.
