Watch a fighter jet land on the middle of a highway road

Here’s really cool footage of a Swedish Saab JAS-39 Gripen fighter jet landing on a road in Finland. The Aviationist says both Finnish and Swedish aircraft were conducting a military force exercise at the Rovaniemi Air Base and on the strip of road. There are also pictures of the planes taking off from the road too.

Everything should have forward canards. Everything.

F-18? Add canards.

C-130? Add canards.

Piper club? Canard that bitch.

Everything looks cooler with canards.
