Welcome everyone to the tranquil mountain resort of Wengen

Tranquil? Not so much. The sky is abuzz with choppers, and crazy people race down the ski slopes. However, the most amazing show is only about to start.

Don’t believe me? Well, here’s your display team for the day. So sit tight and watch!

Yep, you got that one right. That’s an Airbus A320, right there along with the six Tigers of the Patrouille Suisse

Right in front of the snow-covered trees of Winter Wonderland. Does it get any better?

Just wait until they’ve completed their 45-degree bank turn around the valley…

...passed the famous Eiger North Face….

…and are back for the show, whizzing past Eiger Glacier. Now ain’t that a beautiful sight?

 

Throw some cliffs in there, and some icy waterfalls for good measure….

…the result? Simply jaw-dropping! 

What an unlikely couple they are, but what a graceful one at the same time! 

Am I right or am I right?

Wait, they’re back for another round!

Waving the crowd with the landing gear extended. Skillful move!

 

 

As the Airbus retreats to a holding pattern, the Patrouille Suisse awes spectators with its usual, phenomenal show

Formation flight in demanding surroundings? No problem! 

Don’t these planes suddenly appear amazingly tiny?

Makes you realize how huge this glacier actually is!

As always with the Patrouille Suisse, a lot of action fills the skies!

 

But they can do ‘picture perfect’, too!

Thanks a lot for the show!

But watch out for the encore. They brought back their new buddy, too!

Bidding farewell as the dream team splits for good

Thanks a lot, SWISS and everyone involved, for the outstanding show that day. I’ve seen plenty of airshows and flight displays, but this one topped them all!
