During World War II the Swedish Air Force expanded dramatically. It is well known that new wings were established and that vast numbers of aircraft were taken on charge, but the increase in support organizations such as maintenance and repair units is less likely to be remembered. In Arboga, some 150 kilometres west of Stockholm, a highly modern and bomb-proof workshop was built in 1944-45.
This is the story of that workshop, then a major maintenance facility and today an important centre of competence for aircraft manufacturer Saab. Swedish and English text in parallel.
Hardcover with 176 richly illustrated pages.
