Hi folks

Does anyone have pictures of the Gripen's airbrakes deployed?
I've searched the internet with no luck, it is for my Gripen D build, having problems with the fit. :smt017

Thanks

Here you go

Hope that they are what you wanted. Open Gripen airbrakes seem to be a rare sight because they are only open for a few seconds on landing...

Cheers

Thanks mamba, that is a great help. :smt023
I take it they never get displayed with them open.

I'm looking for more, if there are any more out there. Especially very close shots.

I have never seen one with them displayed open. I have a lot of close ups but they are all closed and that really will not help you.

Last week Czech Gripen showed them during slow-flight (from 5 minutes) during display practice http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WQJq9aFnZAY

Not the best view but a different angle. Nice to watch.

I found this video which shows the airbrakes open briefly.
