Hello to all,

Something actually not slingshot-related...

Just thought I'd share a short video (not mine) of the annual "Fliegerschiessen" (Swiss fighter jet shooting competition) held at Axalb, Switzerland every year in October.

For the aviation enthusiasts among you, this is something you will definitely enjoy watching: F/A 18's doing target practice while flying near to the speed of sound. Cool stuff.


Some information about this event:

I only discovered this unique event a few years ago, and intend to go see it possibly next year. Whether is is held or not depends on the cloud ceilings.

Enjoy!

For all of you who enjoyed that great video, here is the cherry on the cake: the "Patrouille Suisse", which is the equivalent of the "Blue Angels" in the US.

You'll get a fabulous view of the Swiss Alps and the "Matterhorn", which is a very well-known symbol of Switzerland (think Toblerone chocolate bars) towards the end of the video - see it here:


Enjoy!
