Tuesday was spotting day @ Payerne Air Base. The main base of Switzerland Air force this time of the year.
It is home of the 17th Falcons and 18th Panthers, and crew were training yesterday on strafing above the lake nearby. My friends and I don’t own any 150-600mm with 2x teleconverters to get pictures of these fast jets maneuvering and shooting around so we kept it to airport ops.
It was my second time there since my first visit in 2018.
Enough said, here enjoy the almighty 🐝🐝🐝
Trend setter, first arrival of the day!
Unfortunately we missed the first wave, thanks to me being a bad navigator in the car and leading to a wrong exit…

Behold “the most photographed church of Switzerland”

Notice how only one side produces a vortex? That’s right, one AIM 9 is attached for training purposes (mostly BFM/ACM)

I hope you enjoyed this. I just started editing with Lightroom mobile app and I’m looking forward to a transition from Darktable in the future.
Needless to say this day was amazing! Let me know if you want to see props and rotors as we’ve seen plenty of them :D
