It’s hard to imagine a more beautiful backdrop for flying fighters than the Swiss Alps.

My friends flying the F-22 Raptor in Alaska may disagree, and I take nothing away from the wilds of their amazing playground up there, but…it’s not the Alps!

Hop into the cockpit of F/A-18 Hornets of der Schweizer Luftwaffe, buckle up, and enjoy as these men rage through the airspace over their country.
