Forum rules
ImageThis is the forum to share your recent aviation photos with the rest of the community, being photos not older than six months at the moment of topic opening. Theme-based topics, not about recent events, should go into the sub-forum.
Although we will not screen beforehand, we reserve the right to delete any images, especially if clearly unsharp or otherwise low in quality. For more information on how to upload you images, check this post.
In topic titles, please use airfield names in stead of just codes, and be clear about what kind of photos your viewers can expect (e.g. CIV/MIL, location etc.).

Finally, bring any photo criticism understandable and to the point, not cynical or offensive! Simultaneously, do not feel offended by criticism per se, but simply explain your motives, taste et cetera, or ignore if you wish so.

They have had some slight communication problems with Swiss white tails. After testings they have noted, that the grey tail is working better.

Yes. But you can take pics like these only if you are very,very lucky! You need a proper wind and a runway. Then you need a lot of snow on the ground. And finally you need a high enough pile of snow placed on a proper place at near the fence. So not so easy task to do ;)
