Meiringen - around and inside the Alpine Fighter Base
Why do I love the Haslital Valley ? Fresh air ? Clean water ? Impressive View ? Axalp ?
Hmm - I think all of the above - and don't be afraid when one of the local Hornets looks a bit grim on you ...
The Hornet does not bite people - it just wanna play against some Tigers
On 23rd of June it was again time for the very popular base visit - organized by the Tourist Office of Meiringen and the Swiss Air Force. During those visits you can see the new movie about the military Airbase Meiringen-Unterbach, watching a demonstration of the Guard dogs and visit the different parts of this very modern base in the middle of the alps. Repair hall, parachute shop, Fire Brigade - nearly everything you can see from near. And of course the aircrafts !
This time I made mainly Video - but first of all one of my morning pictures - available also in BIG
The game during Base visit in the afternoon was called 'Hands up' - first with one to greet the photographer-group on the QRA-Shelter
And some seconds later with both hands up - not a bank robbery I hope
For the answer I would say - watch the video ... but be sure to Fasten your seat belts, please!
