Saab A-32A Lansen

@ Paso Robles, CA

August 2022

My SoCal road trips during airshow season conveniently have some aviation museums along the way. Paso Robles is the home to a very nice collection of warbirds, especially combat jets, at the Estrella Warbird Museum.  Here is a tired and faded SAAB Lansen attack aircraft.  Apparently in the late 1980’s, the Swedish Air Force was desperate to obtain a Spitfire for their collection and sold off five surplus aircraft (which included two Lansens) to raise the funds.  The Museum acquired one of the Lansens in September 2009.
