Wingtip vortices on a Swiss Air Force F-18 at Nato Tiger meet 2011, Cambrai, France.
Some use the alternative expression "trailing vortices" because these vortices also occur at points other than at the wing tips. They are induced at the outboard tip of the wing flaps and other abrupt changes in wing planform.
The Swiss Air Force is the air component of the Swiss Armed Forces, established on July 31, 1914, as part of the Army and as of January 1966 an independent service. In peacetime, Dübendorf is the operational Air Force HQ. The Swiss Air Force operates from several fixed bases, but its personnel are also trained to carry out air operations from temporary highway airstrips. In case of crisis or war, several stretches of road are specially prepared for this option.
