The main static was on the ramps at the north western side of the base. Those marked with an * did also fly. None of the Swedish military helicopters did carry unit markings. The civil Bell 212 still carried its previous operator markings of the Japanese Coast Guard. Bells SE-JIP, SE-JJL, SE-JKD and SE-JKP fly for the military and had Flygs av Försvarsmakten markings. Only the construction numbers read on the day itself are listed. The real Thai serial (Kh20-__/__) for the Gripen is not yet known, it carries only 70107 (unit code) and 39403 (from c/n 39-4403).
Static Hangar (closed):
(15040)/40 Hkp15B 2.Hkpskv  
This hangar was closed during the day, but briefly open at the end of the day to park the static Hkp14 and Hkp16 inside. It was then that the Hkp15 could be seen.

This hangar was closed during the day as well, but was briefly open in the morning and at the end of the show for moving the three static Hkp15s. The Klemm was parked outside at the end of the show.

The two Finnish PC-12s made a brief visit early in the morning, while the Huey is pole mounted between the static and the museum hangar. The museum itself is not listed as this was not part of the airshow and can be visited on any day.
In short, an excellent show! This one will go into the books as one of the better European air shows of 2012. The weather unfortunately was not really co-operating, but on the main public day (Sunday) it was at least mostly dry (despite of heavy downpours not that far further to the north of the airfield). Amongst the highlights of the show were the Thai and South African Gripens. But also the several aircraft of the Flygvapnet Heritage Flight were impressive. The various aircraft flew several times during the day, with the main performance after lunchtime. Several flight passes were made by a mixed formation of a J29 Tunnan, J32 Lansen, Sk60, J35 Draken, J37 Viggen and J39 Gripen.
