              Very nice, esp. the formation pics

              Also interesting to see Gripens with live missiles. I wonder why the Sidewinders are not carried on wingtip pylons. Are Czech people smaller than Swedish?

                no wonder, the reason is less wings strain, if they carry more missiles of course sidewinders are on the wingtips

                  What is that smoke coming downwards near the exhaust?

                    APU - auxiliary power unit. Directly above the smoke, on top of the rear fuselage you can see the opened doors of the APU air inlet.

                      It could also be fuel from the fuel dump vent.

                          Oh, btw, excellent photos! Who's the photographer, and is there a way to get a hold on the originals of some of the pics?

                                  That is most likely compressor secondary air - i.e. air that escapes through the small gaps between the various stator and rotor stages and enters in the central part of the compressor (between the rotor disks). That air is better to be evacuated.

                                  The air appears white because is already compressed, and when escapes in the atmosphere through the ventral pipe it expands and forms condensation.

                                    I bet my five bucks that it is the oil vapour coming from the oil drainage system.
