My sister-in-law from Linkoping happens to be staying with us - I'll see if she met him

It's a small town, dominated by Saab, but with a great ice hockey team.

Here is the photo of Stig Holmström congratulating Christer Fuglesang after his Gripen flight. Stig Holmström is former chief test pilot of SAAB and he flew the first flight of Gripen more than 18 years ago.

Later that day, Christer Fuglesang received his Gripen Order induction certificate during ceremony in Swedish Air Force Museum at Malmslätt AFB by Linköping.

Yes, Cluben is always playing well. Specially when they have such great players as Czech forward Tomas Vlasak. Sadly they lost their final (2-4) with MODO (surely because MODO has two Czechs ).
