Switzerland – Autumn – Day 4/6 – Axalp Air Show Deel 1/4

Day 4 describes the first repetition day for the Axalp Air Show, starting off in complete darkness with a very steep and heavy ascent to the mountain ridge towering over Axalp. The flying display of the Swiss Air Force in front of the alpine background and especially the shooting demonstration of the F-5’s and F-18’s is truly spectacular. This first part contains the photographs of the Eurocopters EC145 and EC635, and the mighty Cougar. Read the full story and see all photographs here. An overview of progress for the other days can be found here.
