Remark Photographer
J-5011 (cn 1351/SFC011) An F/A-18C of the Swiss Air Force ''Fliegerstaffel 11'' taxies over a bridge wich crosses the stream at the bottom of the Oltschibach Falls. The bridges railings are lowered to get some wing clearance. The aircraft are kept in the mountains at this airbase and when they come out they taxi a long taxiway to the runway. The path where the photo was taken from is a public footpath ("Wanderweg'') and crosses the taxiway. The same gravelpath is visible behind the nose of the Hornet. ...Only in Switzerland!

Wonder pic! I have never seem this perspective at Meiringen. To those wondering, the jets can be stored in caves next to the airfield.

A visitor from United States posted Fri May 11, 2012:
Thought I'd take a short drive out in county and enjoy the views.

What's a tiger doing in the middle of Switzerland? Oh wait.....

A visitor from United States posted Fri May 11, 2012:
Brilliant picture! Folding/deployable guard rails too? Awesome! Or are they permanently horizontal with the road?

"I should have made a left toin at Albukoykee..." :) I can imagine the pilot having an unfolded map on his knees, saying "Damn, runway should be here somewhere?!". Great photo Ron!

"barely driven, previously owned by a little old lady who used to drive it to market on tuesdays..."

A visitor from Australia posted Fri May 11, 2012:
So does he turn left after he crosses the bridge?

A visitor from - posted Fri May 11, 2012:
This really warrants 5 stars. But it would be nice to know how the jet ended up there.

A visitor from Switzerland posted Fri May 11, 2012:
Great shot!

A visitor from United States posted Thu May 10, 2012:
Just taking a detour, I presume?!!

War And Peace? Awesome photo!

A visitor from United States posted Thu May 10, 2012:
A Swiss fighter jet in such a tranquil natural setting? I can almost feel the sound of the running water, birds and jet engines singing in harmony. A five-star golden award for this Ron Kellenaers masterpiece. Bravo Maestro!

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Thu May 10, 2012:
What the heck? Is he going hiking or what? And the "cat" on the tail adds even more fun!

A visitor from United States posted Thu May 10, 2012:
Nature and tech. nice shot!

A visitor from United States posted Thu May 10, 2012:
I haven't seen anything like this here stateside with a bridge like that, but i cant help but think of the little kids rhyme "over the river and through the woods to grandmothers house we go" haha.

A visitor from Turkey posted Thu May 10, 2012:
What is this? I'm speechless.

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Thu May 10, 2012:
What, you can drive an F-18 on the highway in Switzerland?? Well, I'm sure the GPS works better than mine...

Right tigers belongs to the forest. Nice one!

A visitor from Brazil posted Thu May 10, 2012:
Nature anda machine. Nice combination. Congrats.

A visitor from - posted Thu May 10, 2012:
Nice! Looks like the Hornet is about to take a leisurely stroll.

A visitor from - posted Thu May 10, 2012:
The tiger in the wildlife..

A visitor from Finland posted Thu May 10, 2012:
Very interesting picture. I had to check the airpot on Google Earth. It looks like this F/A-18 is crossing a stream on its way from a ramp to the runway. The ramps is next to a hill/mountain. Are the jets kept inside the mountain?

A visitor from - posted Thu May 10, 2012:
Wait a mintute.... What the..!! Since when have jets started using roads..... Or am I missing something here :O
