In this movie I tried to show you the 'Mirage-Feeling' every older Swiss Guy is talking 'bout when you ask him for the nicest memories with Swiss Air Force's fleet. For the script I used some Preparation/Take-Off and Taxi-shots of former Jet Bases Dübendorf and Buochs too - but also the real action on Axalp shooting Range in between 2000 'till 2009. Don't forget that I'm a Photographer - Video is only a 'sidekick' - and I do not have the real expensive material there. Enjoy some real Fighters like the Mirage III RS in their natural habitat
Grimmi was hunting again low flying aircrafts - but this time not over the training area of Grandvillard (see Part I, II and III). A bigger exercise of some Anti-Aircraft-Units in between Fribourg - Bulle - Lausanne - Romont and Payerne was on the schedule the last two weeks.
The area was very big and it posed some difficulty to stand at the right place - but I've made some quite nice shots there. Last week with some blue sky and today with a cold snowstorm - enjoy the pictures
Yes - each year in November we loose a good part of our Hornets ... they where in Norway for the training of Nightflights ! They will come back again on 3rd of Dezember, but until then there is not much activity to expect of the rest of our Hornet-fleet - with ten of them in Oerland.
Hornets going to Norway where J-5003/06/07/09/15/16/26 and J-5232/36/37. Support was an Avro (HB-IYY) of SWISS International Airways.
