Photo Comment

Undoubted star of RAF Northolt Charity Night-shoot XIV was this 48 year-old Sabreliner from Malmen AB, Linköping. Used as a testbed for electronics including ultra-wideband ground surveillance synthetic aperture radar, it usually carries long probes, removed for flights over FL22. Acquired in 1980 and only flown for around 20 hrs p/a, a rare appearance indeed outside Sweden, a 6-stop trip to Thailand being one of few other foreign flights. A sister-ship (86002) was retired in 2005, now a ground trainer
