The last MD11 of Swiss has just landed on Rwy 16 and is being said goodbye by the firefighters! With this landing, the more than 13 years lasting MD11-Period in Switzerland, which had begun with Swissair as a launch customer of this airframe, has been finished. This unique aircraft, which has been the flagship of Swissair for years, is now put out of the fleet. Sad, sad, sad, we all will miss you! (Sorry for bad light conditions...)
