Winter in Meiringen

Post by Kevin Martin »

Hi all,

These are some photo’s from a visit to Meiringen air base, Switzerland on the 22nd/23rd February. It was very cold experience and patience was certainly needed with the weather conditions at times but an extremely worthwhile trip altogether. I was hoping for a bit more F-5 action but they didn’t fly too much but the Hornets and a few other visitors kept us busy enough…….

Cheers;

Kevin

Four out of six PC-21’s came by for some overshoots, two in the new scheme, two in the old one….

From what I could tell, there was at least 6 F-5 Tigers on base including 2 in Patroulle Suisse colours on target towing duties. Sadly they were not flying too much…..

Only a handful of onlookers this time, compared to the masses who attend during Axalp…..

Superb. Portrait shot of the Hornet pair is a cracker.
