Volvo TL11 for towing Saab J 29 aircraft
Photographed in the Ängelholm Air Museum, Sweden on 13 June 2012.
Chassis no. TL 11 83, Engine no. 3779. Delivered on 1 July 1954 to go to the Penta factory for supplementary work such as installation of the dc generator on the front to start the Tunnan engine, etc.
We have one of these vehicles in the Aeroseum underground aircraft hangar, where they were used to tow the aircraft out for engine starting.
