There is something to be said about the evolution of the fighter jet. From its humble beginnings as the Me 262 through development into modern Fifth-Generation fighters they have gone a long way. Respect the past while embracing the future and the best way to pay tribute is to unite them at once.
At the Airpower Air Show, a wide assortment of fighter jets united in a dynamic display. These fighters included a De Havilland Vampire, a Tunnan, a Fouga Magister, an F-5 Tiger II, a Saab 105 and a Draken. These jets range from post-WWII to ones that endured into the early 21st century.
“It is particularly nice to have several generations of airplanes flying together, and we have a historic Jet formation in Sweden, which is always very popular with the public. So I was very proud to be part of the Historic Formation of the Austrian Armed Forces. This is definitely something special.”
– Lars Martinsson (Draken Pilot)
These jets aided the world of aviation to become what it is today. These jets are still in amazing condition and fly in a stellar form. See what these seven amazing fighters can do when they unite in the sky in this clip.
