Re: Zigermeet 2019 - Mollis, Switzerland 16th August

Hi Philip

The F18/Bronco formation was the first thing I saw when I arrived at the airfield on Friday, it happened just after 9am. A couple of flypast then the Bronco landed and the F18 did a solo display. It was nice of him to change airframes when he returned later in the day!

Set in a valley in the mountains it's unlike any other airshow I'd been to before, the mountain sides certainly make for an interesting backdrop and it's quite deceptive how much spa...
