Internationally renowned aviation artist and historian Richard J. Caruana provides a tribute to an often under-appreciated aviation legend, the Saab 37 Viggen, an aircraft that was ahead of its time on many fronts. Richards book provides a brief history of the aircraft combined with an exceptional collection of over 56 colour profiles showing schemes worn by Viggens operationally, as well as the special celebratory schemes that became so familiar towards the end of the aircrafts career. Each profile is accompanied by a detailed caption and a brief operational history. A page of detailed scale drawings illustrates and explains the different versions of the Viggen and another page illustrates unit markings worn by the types illustrated in the colour profiles.
Richard J. Caruana, who lives and works in Malta, is best known for his technical and colour drawings which appear regularly in magazines in the UK (Scale Aviation Modeller International), Italy (Elicotteri e Aerei Militari, Aerofan) and Greece (Model Expert).
