The low-visibility two-tone grey scheme worn by F7 Wing JAS 39A 39149 helps the aircraft blend into its surroundings, but the white weapons are somewhat conspicuous. The fact that Saab had to send the Gripen to Boscombe Down in May 1997 to test the aircraft in temperatures as low as -40·C is quite ironic given Sweden's proximity to the North Pole. Saab Gripen 31 show ended. The main features of the AESA were to be: Instantaneous change of beam direction. Rapid flexible beam focusing. Increased detection range.
The prototype, 39207, had yet to fly, which meant that the Swedish Air Force could not use some of the new equipment, such as the air-to-air refuelling probe, until the clearance trials were completed. Flight tests with 39208 started in autumn 2002. Gripen 2010 The Swedish Air Force and FMV now released a computer-generated image which represented a possible Gripen to be produced after the year 2010. New features included thrust vectoring, AESA radar, a new engine (options were the GE F414 and the EJ200) and extra internal fuel (options to be studied were conformal fuel tanks or deleting the two-seater's rear seat and replacing it with a fuel tank; the latter was initiated by a demand from the Brazilian Air Force which had indicated a need for longer range).
Saab at 60 Saab celebrated its 60th anniversary on 6th and 7th September 1997. Among the company's products on static display were Gripens 39144, 39801 (the first production JAS 39B) and several older aircraft. Six more Gripens flew in the air display, 39120 as the solo aircraft and 39113, 39121, 39134 and 39123 as a four-ship; then 39135 took part in a fly-by with examples of most of the jet aircraft designed and built by Saab: the J 29, J 32, J 35, JA 37 and Sk 60. The first Swedish Defence Minister to fly the Gripen was Bjorn von Sydow, on 29th November, with Clas Jensen in the front seat.
