That nice shot of the Danish Drakens 35XD actually shows the delivery flight of the first 3 Drakens out of a total of 46.
Date was 1 September 1970. This is an original 'Saabfoto'  made by I. Thuresson.

SAAB won the contract at 29 March 1968 for the delivery of 20 single seat fighters and two trainers [but with combat capabilities] to the Denmark. The primary role in the Denmark was ground attack. Plane had eleven hardpoint. The same version XD was developed from original F [Filip Ett and Filip Tva] and it comprised RWR retrofitted tail, 30 mm ADEN cannon external mounting, bilget canopy and no radar. This planes replace F-100 Super sabre in service.
