Look like Saabs to me. If I was naming I'd call 'em Helldivers and give 'em a designation of Saab2C. :greensupergrin:

Those look too old to be the SAAB  delta-wing fighters: the Grippen and the Draken, plus those aircraft ave no canards which both of the SAAB aircraft have.

Based on the shape and position of the roudels, I think that those are Israeli Kfirs or early-model Israeli Mirages.

We wouldn't have to guess if the person that posted the photograph included a reference.

Well, excuse my lack of  skill with Swedish spelling.  :miff:

:tease:

<--- not a fan of canards for aircraft

edit: I apologize, Tony.  I thought that you were joshing me about my spelling of Draken.

Did you know that the Swedish alphabet has 29 letters?

You do now.

:biggrin:

Thanks for the identification of the aircraft, amigos.

I don't get them wrong often, but when I do, I just sit and SAAB my eyes out.

:biggrin:

 

Looking at that aircraft's history, it was a significant post-war aircraft.

Though  impressive, I am still not a fan of delta wings or the later canards.

I learned this about that...

This photo is either the 1931 or 1933 Survey flight that Lindbergh and his wife did in those two years.

The aircraft in the photo you like ( I do too! ) was designed and built in 1929 by Lockheed, designed by Gerald Vultee and Jack Northrop.
