Info On Axalp Airshow

Wed Sep 10, 2003 6:56 pm

Inspired by some excellent photos from last year's Axalp airshow, I'd like to go there this year. However, I didn't find too much info yet.

So I'd appreciate if someone could confirm the dates (Oct 8/9 ?) and possibly provide some tips of how to spend the time there. I understand visitors take the skilift to go up on the mountains? How much time is required to get there, about 1.5 hours from ZRH and then to get up to the mountain, and how is a typical day's program like?

Thanks a lot in advance,
Konstantin

Thanks for your info!
Do you think it will be the same that the flight demos begin at 14:oo? That would make getting there in time easier.

Great, thanks Robin!

... and while you're at it, I'm wondering if the program is similar for the two days, or if I should definitely stay both days (which I can't because I can only take one day off - so which day would be the better one?)
