Winter in Meiringen

Winter in Meiringen

Postby Kevin Martin on Sun 27 Feb 2011, 9:48 pm

Hi all,

These are some photo’s from a visit to Meiringen air base, Switzerland on the 22nd/23rd February. It was very cold experience and patience was certainly needed with the weather conditions at times but an extremely worthwhile trip altogether. I was hoping for a bit more F-5 action but they didn’t fly too much but the Hornets and a few other visitors kept us busy enough…….

Cheers;

Kevin

From what I could tell, there was at least 6 F-5 Tigers on base including 2 in Patroulle Suisse colours on target towing duties. Sadly they were not flying too much…..

Superb. Portrait shot of the Hornet pair is a cracker.
