An absolutely stunning set of photographs, difficult to pick any single one , but numbers 4, 11 and 24 stand out - great shooting and thanks for sharing Philippe.

Thank you all for the nice comments :smile:

Here is one more picture out of subject but taken the same week. It's the five PC-21 of the Swiss Air Force and one from Pilatus Factory making a fly-by overhead Sion, celebrating the final graduation of the pilot's school.

Sion is a very nice base. Are these images taken from outside the base?

All pictures were taken from outside the base except the topside shots from above a roof on the civil south-east side.
