Sion's Last Call - WEF17

Sion's Last Call - WEF17

Postby JonoUK on Sat 11 Feb 2017, 8:34 pm

Hi All,

If this was the final time I would get to see military exercises at Sion then it was a fitting finale. Every day was blessed with sunshine (though still sub zero temperatures for the most part) with the Hornets involved in air policing over Davos and Tigers on repetition training there was plenty of action during the short number of daylight hours. Here's my take on days spent in great company, a trip I wont forget any time soon.
