Rich,

Very nice. Swiss do seem to fly a lot of sorties with live rounds fitted, and yet seem to have no problem with photographers being close.

Great set! I really love Swiss Hornets and airbases they have. I recognize Sion and Meiringen. Any other locations?

Thanks for the comments.
Other bases include Payerne, Kleine Brogel, Albacete and maybe Nancy,
