Hunting Hunters and Vampires

Recommended Posts

Last weekend the Swiss watchmaker company Oris organized a fly-in in Ambrì airport, a former military airbase now used as a general aviation airport in Canton Ticino, in southern Switzerland.


In Italy I'm used to great distances between the public and the airplanes. In Switzerland...



Fliegermuseum Altenrhein's Hawker Hunters:













Fliegermuseum Altenrhein's de Havilland Vampire:







Antonov An-2:





Most of the stencils have been translated in English, only few stencils are still in Russian:



P-3 Flyers display team:





Boeing Stearman:





Pitts Special:



Other russians 2 Yakovlev Yak-52:





ERCO Ercoupe:



As you can see, the Ercoupe doesn't have pedals. The rudder is linked to the ailerons so that always performs coordinated turns:



Lots of PC-7s were flying, most of them with paying passengers on board:



Focke-Wulf FW-149, license built version of the Italian light plane Piaggio P.149:



Bolkow Bo.208 Junior:



Gyroflug Super Canard. It is based on the Grob Twin Astir glider: it retains the glider's cockpit section, but with an added engine, different wingplant and canards:



de Havilland of Canada DHC-1 Chipmunk:



Every fly-in MUST have a yellow Piper Cub!



Former Libyan SIAI-Marchetti SF-260, now wearing a fantasy livery:



Did the Breitling Jet Team made an apperance? Nope, it is just a big turbine-powered RC model:



And, as usual, a video by Spillone104:

The background adds so much to the life of the photos. Switzerland was beautiful to shoot from. Great work!


I love how casual everyone is around the aircraft during servicing and watching from above the HAS.


Glad your day went well and thank you for sharing.
