Swiss Air Force 100th Anniversary [part 1/3]

Recommended Posts

Here are the photos I took at Payerne Air Base, in Switzerland, for the Swiss Air Force 100th Anniversary airshow. The airshow is split on 2 weekends (30-31 August, 6-7 September), I could attend only the first one.



Red Bull:

P-38 Lightning







F4U Corsair





B-25 Mitchell







MBB Bo-105 aerobatic helicopter (aerobatic maneuvers were too far from the public)




Breitling Jet Team













Breitling Wingwalkers















Lockheed Super Constellation







Douglas DC-3



Classic Formation with a Douglas DC-3 and two Beech 18s.



Junkers Ju-52



A-1 Skyraider



Notice the sharkmouth on the nose of the drop tank!



Yakovlev Yak-3.



P-51 Mustang.





Comte AC-4, a two-seater training and sport aircraft built by Swiss aviation pioneer Alfred Comte.



OV-10 Bronco



Much to our surprise, the Royal Canadian Air Force sent 2 CF-18 Hornet for the static display. They were listed for this weekend, but they were later cancelled, so it was a great surprise to see 2 of them detach from their redeployment in Romania!



Luftwaffe Panavia Tornado IDS



Austrian Air Force Eurofighter Typhoon



Austrian Air Force Sikorsky S-70 Black Hawk
