Saab B(S) 17

The Saab 17 was a Swedish bomber-reconnaissance aircraft. The aircraft could be fitted with wheels, skis or floats. A unique feature of the Saab 17 was its use of the extended landing gear assembly, with its large covers, as dive brakes. The first test flight was on 18 May 1940 and first deliveries to Flygvapnet were in 1942. However, the development of jets meant it had a short service history. The SAAB 17 had a total production run of 322 aircraft. Source: Info: Wikipedia http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Saab_17 Profile: Wings Palette http://wp.scn.ru/en/
