The legendary aviator Albin Ahrenberg (1889 – 1968) takes a step on the wing of a T 2. Around 1930, Ahrenberg made himself a name after some daring flights to Greenland. In the twenties and the thirties, Albin Ahrenberg made innumerable and always faultless sightseeing flights all over the country – creating a great goodwill for aviation among the Swedish people.

 During the years of WWII, the popular Ahrenberg, from the beginning a naval aviator, served as base commander at Gålö. He often flew the T 2 himself.
