WK Meiringen - Good Bye Fliegerstaffel 8 "Vandalos"

Postby GME-AirFoto on Sun 09 Apr 2017, 9:27 am

Hi all,

I spent two days in beautiful Meiringen in March for the annual Wiederholungskurs (Repetition Course). Every day was blessed with sunshine and with the Hornets and Tigers on repetition training there was plenty of action. Sadly it was the last WK for the F-5´s of Fliegerstaffel 8 "Vandalos”. Today, 26 F-5E Tiger II remain in Swiss Air Force service until 2025. The end of 2017 will see the disbandment of all three remaining F-5 Tiger II units. F-5E Tiger J-3073 received a special tail decoration reading "Adios Vandalo" (Good bye Vandalo) to bid farewell to the squadron. Some images of a superb trip to Switzerland:
