Here come the picture. Sorry about the 15min of editing expired

F/A-18 Hornet pulling up to pass the 3900m mountain in background

8G turn

and up again

starting inverted roll to dive down the mountain from 2300m down to 800m

one last pass

Eurocopter Cougar used for VIP transport to establish the so called "big lift"

Tiger F-5 passing at 450 knots

The best export product of Switzerland in 2012 is most probably the Pilatus PC-21

Here the Gripen F Demonstrator

Swiss Air Force SAR Eurocopter EC635 to support the REGA

AOA-No-Limits, here begins the Swiss Air Force Hornet Demo show.

Pull up to 25000 feet

8 to 9G turn

passing at mach 0.98 and firing a flare

Patrouille Suisse

Formation "Mirror*

Solo pilot at his high speed, low pass in verted - mach 0.95

The shots were mostly taking with the ZD 300, some of them with the ZD 150

One thing I learned, never again with the ZD 300 onto a 3hrs walk from 1500 to 2250m

My bag weight was around 15kg
