A little insight into the swedish airforce
1 September 2002 | by SegelflygarenSee all my reviews

For me as a flight enthusiast it's fun to watch movies with a lot of flying in it (obvious). "Älskar, älskar inte" has a bit of a Top Gun wannabe-feeling at first, with all the airphotos of Viggen rushing through on your TV screen. It's nice though, as long as there's no drama in it. So I recommend to watch the first 30 minutes or so.
