Photographer's Note

"La patrouille des patrouilles" composed of 40 Jets : Conjoined formation of the European Air Forces's five Aerobatic Teams present to the "Air 04 Payerne" air show. From left to right :

- The English "Red Arrows" composed of 9 jets of English manufacture (HAWK 1/1a).
- The Spanish "Patrulla Aguila" composed of 7 planes of Spanish manufacture (Casa C-101).
- The Swiss "Patrouille Suisse" composed of 7 jets of American manufacture (F-5E Tiger II).
- The Swedish "Team 60" composed of 6 jets of Swedish manufacture (Saab 105 SK 60).
- The Italian "Frecces Tricolor" composed of 11 planes of Italian manufacture (Aermacchi MB-339PAN).

The French Aerobatic Team "Patrouille de France" was not present. But no matter: The quality of these Aerobatic Teams is really at least of the same level.

This Air Show is simply the best than I saw until now (275000 spectators, not less than 67 flying displays). Congratulation, the Swiss People, for your welcome, your kindness, the organization, and the quality of the program!
