In September 2014, the Swiss Air Force celebrated its 100th anniversary in Payerne with a amazing airshow. In 184 displays, pilots from all over the world flew a grand total of 50 hours during the two AIR14 weekends and the much-visited training days in-between. “It was simply magical” says the director of AIR14, General Staff Colonel Ian Logan. “We wanted to pay tribute to our aviation history and I believe we’ve done so spectacularly.” Beside my main job with the Patrouille Suisse, I also filmed some impressions from the ground. Back to origins : alone with a camera along the runway, trying to capture the beauty of flight.
