During this years Swiss Air Force refresher course the 35mm Air Defense Units got to conduct numerous live firings. Both radar guided and using the Gun King Optical Sight. To train the gunners the PC-9 deploys the drogue that is then about 900 meters behind the aircraft. The Aircraft is at about 3000 ft. After the firing the drogue is dropped.
The Pc-9 is most elegant and it nice to see something diffrent for once.
Great start into the season.
My Canberra flew well, hitting 140 km/h in the low level flyby.
Great event! But also a bit the end of the line for the high end glass fibre single engined fighter edf. They have reached perfection and lack that sparcle of the pioneering days. Mayby we will soon withness the comback of the wooden edf? or some more multi engine planes?
