    Isn't the Junkers Ju 86 and Heinkel He 115 in Flygvapenmuseet the only surviving examples in the world?
    Great to see another fellow Swede here at the forum! Hej och Valkommen! Hi and Welcome!

    I think the Ju-86 is the only surviving example in the world. Not to sure about the He 115 but it's possible. Anyone who knows if there is any existing examples of these aircrafts anywhere in the world?

    That's a magic photo of the He-115 heading towards the camera at treetop height.

    Could not scan them in due to my crappy scanner, but googled for some pictures and found the classic picture of the Tp-47 after it was downed by the Soviet Mig-15.

    Looking at the collection of aircraft that were operated by the Swedish Airforce you have to take your hats off to the Maintanence Crews. It must have been a nightmare.
