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.
