Swedish Air Force Christmas Tree dates and locations

Swedish Air Force Christmas tree will be perfomed this year as well. The Swedish Air Force (Flygvapnet) posted the planed route for the 2020 year.

The Air Force’s Christmas tree flights The Air Force with units from north to south will carry out traditional formation flights – Christmas tree flights – over parts of Sweden in December. The security policy situation in our immediate area has changed. To meet the rapid and unpredictable development, the Armed Forces has chosen to focus its operational presence on our country and our national interests. The task of the Armed Forces is to defend the whole of Sweden. Practicing to maintain our ability is an important part. Formation flight – Christmas tree flight – is a good exercise for the combat aircraft divisions to plan and carry out flight in larger formation for a longer period of time. It is also a way for the air force to show presence, as a guarantor of citizens’ security against external threats, in places where the Armed Forces may not be seen as often. Please note that times are approximate times and the route may change due to local weather conditions. Aviation safety always has the highest priority. In low cloud base / bad weather, it is also not possible to see the formation from the ground. Look at the sky in good time so as not to miss the opportunity. Any changes in the planned flight will be updated on each association’s facebook pages.
