Вторая эскадрилья седьмого авиакрыла начала освоение AJ 37 в 1973 г. На приведенном снимке тройка «Виггенов» выполняет тренировочный полет. На крыльевых пилонах установлены блоки m/70 со 135-мм неуправляемыми ракетами Bofors. Первый год эксплуатации самолеты оставались неокрашенными. Обратите внимание, маркировка авиакрыла F 7 нанесена на воздухозаборнике, позднее ее стали размещать на носовой части фюзеляжа
