Post subject: Payerne. Air 14

www.air14.ch/

Last summer in Switzerland we had an amazing airshow, celebrating 100 years of Swiss Military Aviation, 75 years of Patrouille Suisse and 25 years of PC-7 Team.
In a time where budget cuts means less resources for such shows, this was an unique events.
Unfortunately I only had a 70-200 mm lens, too short for planes, many of my pictures are heavily cropped and not up to my usual standards, but some subjects are worth sharing anyway.

This is the "100 years" formation:

The Al Fursan are claerly inspired by Italian "Frecce Tricolori", they fly Italian planes and were trained in Italy too. They aren't up to the best acrobatic teams yet, but they aren't bad. They do something unique, while formation take-off is pretty standard among other teams, Al Fursan do formation landing!

I like the B-25 too and I am going to post more shots.
It was a great event, there is a dedicated group on Flickr that could give you an idea:
