SwAF JAS39 Gripen down.

Article in swedish.

The Gripen hit a flock of birds. The pilot initiated a RTB but experienced maneuverability issues and ejected safely.


Glad to hear the pilot is OK.

Sad! I really like that platform. And birds too, I guess :slight_smile:

Too bad about the jet. Glad the pilot is OK.

Good thing it was just a flock of birds and not A Flock of Seagulls …

…that would have been a true '80s band tragedy! :sunglasses:
