Too bad you've already used the Vulcan, it just made it's last flight 10/28/15. http://www.worldwarbirdnews.com/2015/11/01/avro-vulcan-xh558-final-flight/

Miss Fit, not too many people are aware that the Viggen was powered by a P&W JT8D (same engine that pushed the B-727 & DC-9 around) with reheat supplied by Volvo Flygmotor. Back then, afterburning turbofans were unusual. But it worked, dinnit?

Weird looking and weird sounding, but it got the job done!

Another interesting point about the Viggen: it had a thrust reverser, to slow it quickly after landing. You can see (and hear) it at work in the last landing in the clip you selected.
