"Last Call" - WEF2017 QRA and Tiger Repetition Course
2017 will see the last operational year of Sion airfield, as a Swiss Air Force Military base. During the first 4 weeks of the year, Sion was homebase for more than a dozen F/A-18 Hornet from
Fliegerstaffel 11, 17 and 18 as well for approx. a dozen F-5E Tiger II. Reason enough, to spent at least 3 days at this wonderful location, to capture some "wild" Tiger and Hornets, scrambling
ouf of Wallis, for the last time, maybe........
The following numbers were noticed during my stay: F/A-18C Hornet: J-5005, J-5006, J-5007, J-5008, J-5009, J-5012, J-5013, J-5016, J-5019, J-5020, J-5021, J-5023, J-5025, J-5026;
F-5E Tiger II: J-3030, J-3036, J-3038 s/c, J-3070, J-3073, J-3074 s/c, J-3077, J-3093, J-3095; Pilatus PC-9: C-412; Pilatus PC-21: A-102, A-105
and finally Pilatus PC-7: A-933 and A-938.
