Hi all!

Here are a few images taken from a superb trip to Sion AB in Switzerland earlier in the year.
Two days of glorious winter sun and a good covering of snow thrown in too!
Thanks to Rich, Jon and Chris for the company.

Cheers,

Got to love the Swiss and how open there airfileds are. Where those taken during last years WEF? Some of those F5's have live AIM-9's on

These are some of the best I have seen from Sion. Some great angles and the shots are as crisp as the snow. Fantastic. :rock:

Thankyou for the kind words all!

Ian,
Will definately be going back for another trip one day!

Simon,
Sion is probably one of the least accessible base's to shoot at in Swiss land as there is a six foot high fence around the base. These were shot from this year's WEF and yes, most of them were live armed. I think the only one that wasn't live armed was the one with the dayglo tank.

Hope you all had a super Xmas,
Paul
