Flying Formation | 75 Years of Zürich Airport

75 Years of Zürich Airport

This year Zürich Airport celebrated it 75th anniversary. Between the 1st to 3rd September the airport hosted a big festival for the special occasion. There were a bunch of aircraft on static display, ranging for a small Diamond DA40 NG, all the way to an A330-300 in the SR Technics / SWISS Technics Hanger.

The main highlight of the day was the flypast of a Helvetic Airways Embraer E190-E2 alongside the Patrouille Suisse with their Northrop F-5’s.
