Uganda receives F/A-18's! @ LSMP

An exciting trip to Payern Air Base in Switzerland took me, @AndrewWu, @Transport_Hub, and @Altaria55 to see some unique jets. Uganda recently received their F/A-18’s in which they launched after an hours wait. We also got to see some rare F-5 Tigers recover!

These will pair very nicely with their Soviet/Russian MiG-21s and Su-30s :) .

In all seriousness, nice photos as always!

I’ve already spotted these Lufty PC21 in some air show over the Léman lake. Thanks for reminding me they are still existing ^^
