“Flying over the mountains in the north of Sweden while looking out – the photo is just a fraction of the actual experience of demonstrating the air power dominance of Gripen in the arctic environment.” André Brännström, test pilot and photographer.
“Close to the town of Ostrava – Czech Air Force Gripen livened up the photoshoot with some spectacularly painted jets.” Evert Keijzer, photographer.
“It’s a very small window, a few seconds, and then the image is gone.” Gunnar Åkerberg, photographer.
“Pulling up into a climb, I am working hard, looking back over my shoulder – keeping my camera fixed despite the G-forces. Gripen is flown precisely by the pilot who snaps into a perfect break, exactly as planned.” Jamie Hunter, photographer.
“To make up for lost time the Hungarian Air Force pilots had to make full use of the Gripen’s speed to make it to the photoshoot. It was impressive to watch.” Evert Keijzer, photographer.
“A Gripen air-to-air shoot is the ultimate experience for me as a photographer.” Linus Svensson, photographer.
"As a photographer I’m subject to every G-force that is happening, but the more you do it, the easier it gets.” Justin de Reuck, photographer.
“It’s kind of a dance, together, when flying in formation.” Linus Svensson, photographer.
“Half way down the runway it takes to the air. It’s a mighty thing to see.” Tim Jansson, photographer.
“Accompanying the first flight of the F-39E Gripen is the Brazilian skies was an indescribable emotion. Participating in this historic moment of the Brazilian Air Force was an honour for me.” Sergeant Johnson, Brazilian Air Force.
“Marcel Dassault once said ‘If it is beautiful, it will fly well’, and to me Gripen is beautiful from any angle.” Jörgen Ericsson, photographer.
“I always believed that a photograph should evoke some sort of emotion.” Justin de Reuck, photographer.
