Axalp (-Ebenfluh) Airshow 2010 - Training on the shooting range
Yes - Airshow Axalp begins early for a Grimmi
But I was not alone up there today - for the hundreds of visitors expected there had to be a lot of things ready. This Super Puma - Picture in BIG - was used for transporting Toilets, Speakers, Wood and Humans to fix everything for the Show next Wednesday / Thursday.
I was also lucky to catch a lot of Hornets and Tigers during shooting - the shooting range is open since 1st of October. Hornet J-5012 turns in during reconnaissance fly-bye:
Hornet J-5015 - Picture in BIG - producing some G-forces after a strafing run with his 20mm cannon
Sometimes you have to delete some color to make a picture really stunning - Tiger J-3072 on straight on to the mountain
Fighter Squadron 8 is the 'Master of Axalp Range' - but due political reasons they had to fly the Demo/shooting also this year out from Sion and not Meiringen.
And now I have to go catch some sleep - early tomorrow morning I'm biking and hiking already up again for some more shots.
Sincerely, your mountain goat Grimmi
