SAAB JA-37 Viggen

This is the 3rd time that I edit this picture. I was not happy with 2 previous ones because one had a better processing in the aircraft, but maybe overdone and the other one had better dramatic clouds but the plane looked flat. So in this revision, I think that I have the best for each other, although I have fully edited the picture. This is not a mix between the older versions.

The SAAB 37 Viggen (English: Thunderbolt) was a Swedish single-seat, single-engine, short-medium range fighter and attack aircraft, manufactured between 1970 and 1990. Several variants were produced to perform the roles of all-weather fighter-interceptor, ground attack and photo-reconnaissance, as well as a two-seat trainer. The model in the image is part of the Cuatro Vientos Air Museum collection, that can be visited from Tuesday to Sunday, between 10:00 and 14:00.

Traffic Helicopter

One year ago, I was visiting the Air Museum in Madrid and this is one of the pictures that I still had in my HDD without processing. The traffic helicopter is the Aerospatiale SA 319B Alouette III (EC-CBY).

The Aérospatiale Alouette III is a single-engine, light utility helicopter developed by Sud Aviation and later manufactured by Aérospatiale of France. The Alouette III is the successor to the Alouette II, being larger and having more seating. Originally powered by a Turbomeca Artouste IIIB turboshaft engine, the Alouette III is recognised for its mountain rescue capabilities and adaptability.

The first version of the Alouette III, the SE 3160 prototype, first flew on 28 February 1959. Production of the SA 316A (SE 3160) began in 1961 and remained in production until 1968, when it was replaced by the SA 316B.
