On 18 June 2024, Flygvapnet (SwedAF, Swedish Air Force) officially said goodbye to the Skolflygplan 60 (Sk60, Saab 105). Around 25 Sk60s were still active with the Flyg Skolan (FlygS), part of the Luftstridsskolan (LSS, Air Combat School) at Linköping/Malmen.

During a ceremony at the Air Force's Museum in Linköping/Malmen, the decommissioning ceremony started at 15:00 hrs LT with speeches by the Chief of the Air Force Jonas Wikman, the head of the Luftstridsskolan Niclas Magnusson and the head of the Air Force Museum, Noomi Eriksson.

At 15:45 hrs LT, the last air show with the Sk60 has been carried out by display pilot Nils "Princess" Schylström.

In February 2024, Scramble Magazine first wrote on the planned sunset of this remarkable jet training aircraft.
