Today, I learned that:

There are a new number of things from Brazil that I would like to publish here on my blog, so here they come!

Gripen is in the air !

Yesterday we received the thrilling news that the first of the new Gripen fighter series on contract from FAB, the Brazilian Air Force, has made its maiden voyage.

This fabulous photo was taken on 2019-08-26 during the maiden flight of the first aircraft Gripen E of the production series, 16 minutes into the flight which started on Saab’s airfield in Linköping, Sweden.

See reference #1 below for all the details.

I would like to take this opportunity to present a tribute to all my friends at Saab and FAB, both in Sweden and Brazil, and congratulate them on what they have accomplished so far and wish them success in their continued missions.

More exciting Brazilian news will follow soon!

That’s what I learned in school !
