Auf Wiedersehen by Philip West.


Auf Wiedersehen by Philip West.

This symbolic bouquet break by the Patrouille Suisse with the snow covered peaks of the Swiss Alps below signifies the retirement of the beloved Hawker Hunter from team service in 1994. After thirty years of thrilling displays around Europe, the Hawker Hunters of the Patrouille Suisse performed their last public display at Nancy in France on 25th September 1994. Considered by many to be the most beautiful jet fighter ever to grace the skies the Swiss machines, with their striking paint scheme, enabled the Patrouille Suisse to bring an exceptional element of grace and elegance to the dynamic type of aerobatic display performed by most jet aerobatic display teams. Even more remarkable in their performance is the fact that the team members were all regular pilots with the Surveillance Wing of the Swiss Air Force and as such were able to practice just once per month when normal duties allowed. Their appearances were comparatively rare as they performed only about 6-10 public displays per year but their professionalism was legendary amongst aerobatic teams, one of the most memorable moments being at Fairford, England in 1993 when they flew an outstanding display immediately after the mid-air collision by Russian MiGs.
