Saab 2000 of Braathens Regional takes off at Bern Airport in Switzerland. This was a charter flight to Gothenburg, Sweden. On board this turboprop aircraft was the BK Häcken football team who played against FC Thun.

The Saab 2000 is a regional aircraft, Swedish-built, carries 50 passengers and is one of the fastest turboprop airliners. Its high cruise speed is near jet speed at 680 km/h what gave the Saab 2000 the nickname "Concordino". The airliner is powered by two Rolls-Royce Allison AE 2100A turboprop engines, each driving a six-bladed propeller.
