Axalp 2012 - Swiss Air Force Shooting Ranch action

Last Thursday I went up to 2250m over sea level to visit the yearly Swiss Air Force shooting demonstration in Axalp shooting ranch.

F/A-18 Hornet, F-5 Tiger II could be seen firing their gattling onto ground targets. Special guest this year was the Saab Gripen F Demonstrator.

First time for me was to carry the ZD 300 2.8 up there. Here the results

The F-18 pulling up the mountain after shooting. Speed is around 450knots and the mountain behind is roughly 3900m

For the VIP transport, the Eurocopter Cougar is being use for the "Big Lift"

Tiger F-5 passing at 450knots
