Flugplatzfest / Hunterfest St. Stephan 2015

After a very hot summer, it was refreshing to photograph again some aircrafts with snowy mountains. On former military base Sankt Stephan (LSTS) you can expect a very nice show with propeller and jet aircrafts once a year - after the crash of two aircrafts a week before (Dittingen) without airshow demos this time. But the scenery is always worth the travel !

One of the many stars of the show - PAPYRUS Hunter is based here and showed some high angle approaches to this little strip of runway somewhere in the valley.

Do I've talked about the marvellous scenery there already ?

Quite a lot of visitors in the Simmental Valley 

REGA had installed her daily base also on the field

Fliegermuseum Altenrhein was also present and there flights where well booked

And yes - I will be there again next year - Aug 27th, 2016 !
