Photo Comment

Saab's J21R jet fighter retained the long legs of the J21A propeller plane, and compared to the otherwise rather similar Vampire it seems to stand twice as high! This machine is actually a surviving J21A, 21286, modified to represent the extinct jet variant. 64 J21Rs were originally constructed and they were soon converted to A21R attack aircraft.
