Flying Shit

Flying Shit
Made by Alvaro Aviation
This photo sums up this year Axalp life firing exercise, tons of flying crap. The EC635 where carrying stuff down from Axalp, among other things, tons of portable toilets that where emptied on the flight back :) The exercise was cancelled among some beautiful blue skies because of public security accessing the range and been able to respond on further precipitation or landslides after Monday rains. Anyway I enjoyed Meiringen and the Alps on my non-axalp. Swiss Air Force, Push the Limit!

Like many Swiss front line stations the aircraft at Meiringen are stored in deep under mountain cavens. Here J-5005 has just returned from a sortie. Engines are shutdown and the plan towed inside

This purch offered this kitty a fine safe place to relax while keeping a vigilant eye on the field below where lunch scurries to keep from being prey to cats and raptures.
