ASI in real life

Since the ASI in the Swedish variants of the Sib WingsLab Safir reads "AIRSPEED" i thought I should show what is written on the ASI in real life.
"FART" can at least be related to airspeed in some sense..... :wink:

Best regards,

Håkan

Another simple answer:
There was no possibility whatsoever to cage the gyros in the Finnish Safirs since they were of a compeletely different design.......

Just kidding :wink:
Use the same method as in the B model and you will be just fine

Pelle, I'm glad you made it back home safely. It's really impressive that you managed to get home and upload your pics so fast! It seems that you had a beautiful trip back home. It's true that I only drank water yesterday :cry: but I hope I can compensate that mistake at the next meeting ;-) Best re...

A report from the Safir meeting. (Long loading time !)

On Friday May 4 the Safirs started to drop in at Gothenburg City Airport. Th airport itself is an old air force base built during WW2. Due to mist and low clouds a lot of the participants didn't arrive until Saturday. In total 18 Safirs visited the meeting. There should have been 22 in total but due...

50085, or 91.400 is probably the Safir that is most known to the Swedish public. It was used for aerobatic displays for many years in both F6-75 and F5 (5 markings. The displays were performed by Alf Ingesson-Thor, one of those pilots who have the little extra that we others can only dream of. He fl...

I will try to sort things out a bit The Safir was called 91 by SAAB since it was their project number. All Safirs have a serialnumber from SAAB that starts with 91. 91.001, 91.002 and so on. The Swedish Air Force adopted their own serial numbers for the Safir which starts with '50' since the type wa...

:oops: :oops: :oops: You're right about the VOR ! My test flight was so short that I didn't realize that I was flying on the wrong radial. Maybe there's a earthing fault or something in the real HB-DBL, or at least we can pretend that there is one :) My DG works fine though. I like the Safir so much...

Hi Renato,

The 91C is a bit more difficult to repaint than the 91B.
Maybe you can get som help from this link : topic330.html

Maybe my repint of SE-EDD can be of some help. I'm still struggling with the textures on the fin of 91C SE-KYG

Best regards,
