Superbase Meiringen

Postby elderforest on Sun 16 Oct 2011, 7:59 am

Hi all,

Spent a few days at the fabulous base at Meiringen in Switzerland to get some photos of the AXALP participants. Luckily there was a contingent of F-5 Tigers based to play with the Hornets.

A great place for aviation photography with no fences to contend with and a fantastic mountain backdrop.

Enjoy.

Lovely set of shots. Meiringen is wonderful for access and backgrounds especially with the snow and the Autums colours. It's really hard to pick a specific shot as they are all spot-on but 2, 3 5 and 11 just have that something extra. :clap: :clap: :clap:

Lovley stuff :clap: Nice to see some markings appearing on the Hornets; looks like each Staffel's getting a special, and never knew the team had their own Porter - very smart!!!
