In 1989 the Swiss celebrated the 75th anniversary of their Air Force and 25 years of demo-flying with La Patrouille de Suisse. The festivities took place at Sion Aerodrome in Kanton Wallis on June 23rd to 25th including an interesting international air show with both warbirds , civil aircraft and operational military aircraft participating. Hans – while on vacation- travelled all the way by car across the Alps to be present on the 23rd and 24th of June.
This airfield in Belgium certainly is an eldorado for Warbirds-fans and 1996 was a year in which a great air show was organized there , not in the least because some former air force jets took part ! Especially interesting to watch were examples of the F-86 Sabre and the MIG 15 , once real opponents during the Korean War. Hans and Frank enjoyed their performance very much.
