This year marks the 60th-Anniversary of the Saab Automobile, but it also marks the 60th-Anniversary of the United States Air Force. On this historic year, you may find yourself interested in making it to the Saab Automobile USABorn From Jets” which is in its 2nd annual tour. On Saturday May 19th or Sunday, May 20th, you will get a chance to see the latest Saab models, pickup product literature, watch some incredible promotional videos all at the “Born From Jets” mobile hangar at Andrew Air Force base in Washington, D.C.

If you have the chance to make it to this show, you may be inspired by the overwhelming aircraft presence and coverage and reach that the Saab Automobile “Born From Jets” promotional tour has. It is noteworthy that this tour occurs on the same weekend as the aforementioned Saabs @ Carlisle event. Logisically speaking, and if your schedule permits, one will still be able to make the air show to see the Born From Jets tour if your visit to Saabs @ Carlisle event consists of a single day.

If anyone gets a chance to make it to this air show, please take your point & shoot and video cameras because if you are lucky, the SAAB Gripen, may make another appearance that is not to be missed! If luck continues to be on your side, you may also end up with a nice gift of a rare Saab “Born From Jets” coin by visiting the mobile hangar at the show.
