Flygvapenmuseum     Swedish Air Force Museum (Flygvapenmuseum) 
Swedish Air Force Museum Store
(Flygvapenmuseum)
Linköping, Sweden
August 2014

In close proximity to the museum but not open to the public is the Flygvapenmuseum's storage facilities. Access is not easily granted as the hangar is situated on the Malmen air base itself. A number of these aircraft have previously been on display at the museum but were withdrawn for various reasons. Others require restoration but lack of resources and limited display area will mean that some of these airframes may not see the light of day for a while.

Museum restoration area
At the time of my first visit in June 2013 museum workers were preparing the Tp85 Pembroke for restoration after it had been on display outside the museum for decades. Paint, oil and grease were being removed by chemicals and pressure washed away to leave the natural bare metal. Such was the friendliness of the museum staff, work stopped to allow me to ask about their project and to enable me to take these images. Thank you.
