United Kingdom 2007 Defender 110 Puma 2.4 DCPU Stornoway Grey

Hmm, I find the concept of a yodelling festival quite disturbing. I imagine the fly-by was a merciful relief!

I believe those aircraft didn't have GPS fitted. Seems like a fairly inopportune bit of economising to me.

Perhaps it is just as well the Swiss adopt a position of neutrality at times of war!!!
Otherwise their air force could be a major liability.
I only hope their commercial airline, Swiss International, has a better sense of direction Rolling with laughter
