Jet-Assisted Sledding

Have you seen this yet? The Swedish Air Force — words that sound completely implausible together — has just three squadrons and a few dozen planes. It has fought in only two wars, the last in Congo in 1964. Maverick and Iceman weren’t Swedish fighter pilots, and even its roundel looks like a happy face. Sweden simply isn’t one of the world’s air powers.

So it makes total sense that the Scandinavian country might redeploy its air ships to more, um, peaceful uses. (Or so it’s claimed in this video.) No matter who’s at the stick, I want to know how they resist the urge to punch it.
