Osterreich schnee und Sonne

Postby RichPittman on Sat 30 Jan 2010, 11:07 pm

Hi all.
This last week saw "Exercise Daedalus 2010".
The mission to help defend the skies over Davos World Economic Forum .The Eurofighter flew with average mission times of 1 hour and 50 minutes from Zeltweg without centre line tanks. Innsbruck had 6 Pc7s with gun pods detached from Zeltweg.The weather was far from ideal but the sun did shine a couple of times.

Cracking Rich. As already said, light is stunning and show up the Tiff beautifully. Looks a tad cold though. When are you going back for the last 5?
