Sion - 28/29th January

Postby Kevin Martin on Fri 31 Jan 2014, 8:55 pm

Yet another post from Sion, all be it not quite another WEF one........

Starting off the year in exactly the same place i took my last photo's last year, here is a selection of shots from a last minute trip to Sion, Switzerland.

The week previous the Hornets and Tiger's were on air policing duties for the annual World Economic Forum, but seeing as they were due to stay in Sion the week after I decided to take a chance and hope for some decent flying activities.

Hope you enjoy, and any comments/discussion always welcome.

Hi Rich,

After spending around 15 days at Sion over the last 5 years it was about time they used 07! Shame it's almost impossible to catch the F-5's from the wrong side of the fence though.

J-5001 seems elusive to a few people I know and only ever seems to fly when I go on my own!

Cheers,

Kev
