Buochs + Meiringen 12/05/2014

Post by Wim »

On Monday the 12th of May we arrived at Buochs airfield in the morning and soon after our arrival two PC-21's for the Royal Saudi Air Force departed for a flight. Around noon we "discovered" some Saudi PC-21's without engines in front of a cavern, and more were being held out. Apparently they needed one of the PC-21's in the back of the cavern and in total 14 PC-21's were being towed out of the cavern! In the afternoon the two Pilatus PC-21's made a flight as well as a PC-7 mk.2 for the Indian Air Force.

After leaving Buochs in the afternoon we went to Unterbach to check in at our apartment for the rest of the week. Our apartment is located just next to the airfield, and in the garden we even have a military shelter!! Before we checked in, some hornets took off which landed about one hour later. After diner night flying started and this is very impressive to see in the mountains. We went to the road crossing when they taxied back to their caverns and tried some night photography which wasn't easy with moving aircraft.
