The largest civil air show in Switzerland took place on August 16 and 17, 2019 “just around the corner” on the airfield of Mollis. We thank all customers and callers for their understanding, if they were not always understood, while jets were thundering over our production and office buildings.
An estimated 30’000 spectators enjoyed a unique air show during two days amidst a fantastic mountain scenery. Among other things Boeing F/A 18, Hornet of the Swiss Air Force, the Airbus Eurofighter of the German Air Force, the Saab Gripen C of the Swedish Air Force, the formation Patrouille Suisse and Tiger Hunter and the Dassault Rafaele C of the French Air Force showed their flying skills.
But even the static display “on the ground” experienced a huge rush. The Airbus A400M “Atlas” of the German Air Force was already attracting great interest due to its huge dimensions. The Airbus Eurofighter and the Airbus Eurofighter (mockup), the Historic Helicopter Group’s Bell 47G3 or the REGA ambulance jet Bombardier Challenger 650, the rescue helicopter of the REGA, the Cessna 551 “Citation II” from the Swedish Air Force Historic Flight, the Dassault Rafale C of the French Air Force and the Mil Mi-171 of the Croatian Air Force or the Lockheed Martin F-35, a stealth multi-purpose fighter aircraft, the US armed forces also attracted much public. And the Mollis-based company Kopter showed visitors the new Swiss helicopter SH09.
For aviation enthusiasts, this was an occasion of the superlative.
