I grew up about 1 mile from the runway of Interlaken AB.

This was the time (1970's and 1980's), when Ju-52, P-2, P-3, Do-27, Vampires, Venoms and Hunters were in active duty for the Swiss Air Force. I saw the first F-5E Tiger II in silver livery from the USAF during the evaluation for the Tiger.

It was a great time then, back in the days, when Switzerland had a real Air Force....
