'Karussel' was the name of the saturday evening show, long before youtube and netflix. With the heavy camera equipment in the nose, the Vampire flew three routes through switzerland - accompagnied by the Patrouille Suisse (still on Hunter) above the Gotthard and other aircrafts like Mirage and F-5 Tiger II elsewhere.

Third candidate comes from just the country beside - la France ! With quite a lot of common training between our Air Forces and good relations, France is expected as a favourite. Now they have to show the capabilities of there new generation of fighter aircraft.

With the arrival of two Super Hornets and an KDC-10 as support aircraft, the second candidate began it's evaluation in Payerne Avril 29, 2019. Unfortunally the two Fighters lost there squadron insignas for the trip to Switzerland.
This time also normally civil spotters where informed about the guests - there interest was mainly the KDC-10 ofcourse.
The Nightflight mission was also very hot - never ending afterburner 😍
Very good point made - sending a female pilot is quite normal in the USN, in Switzerland on military jets very seldom.
