Tripreport Switzerland CIV / MIL / W&R

Post by spottervito »

LOG Roadtrip Switzerland
Hi everybody,
I recently returned from a two week holiday in Switzerland. Basically it was a family holiday but as always I visited several locations of interest also for me as a spotter.
It was a mixture of military airbases, civil airfields and airports and some w&r locations that I still needed to see or that were en route anyway.
To make it easier for you to find what you are looking for I divided the LOG in several chapters.

1. Military airbases

My visit here was spoiled by the unfortunate crash of F-5E J-3089 in the morning. As a consequence all planned missions for the day were cancelled. The PC-21 already had their engines running, but shut down again.

I arrived here in the evening when flying was finished, but a friendly member of the helicopter company was still around and let me into their hangar to see the helicopters. He even opened the GA hangar for me so that once again I logged everything present here. That`s Switzerland!
Do27 D-EJJJ which should be here according to EMOOS was not seen. Instead L-4J HB-OEN looked to be based (in EMOOS listed under Raron)

I arrived here in pouring rain – so noone was here.
The old wooden hangar next tot he road could be checked. No sign of Bücker HB-UUD which should be here but it could be of course in the bigger hangar on the opposite side of the street which could not be accessed.

thank you!
Concerning Meiringen: We were told that maybe they would fly later in the day but me (and the family) did not want to wait some hours as it was not sure in the morning...

Nice report! Is Lodrino still worth visiting or are there not that many activities?

I haven't been to Lodrino in ages, but Eurodemobbed mentions ENBV-8348 as the serial for the single Venezuelan S61...

In my opinion it is worth a visit although there are surely many places with more activity in Switzerland. But it is situated conveniently on the way to the lakes in the south and if you are travelling there like we did it is directly en-route.

And how exactly do you know from a sighting in 2015, that from the three a/c the one outside in 2021 is ENBV-8348?

I've been puzzling over which Sea King that is for 3 years now. It was already there in 2018, in 2019 I saw it again in July this year. You can see in the photo that it has been outside for a long time because there is green deposits on the wheel arch.

I've even emailed Karen SA (the helicopter company over there), but their answer is unfortunately disappointing:
"I am sorry to inform you that the mentioned helicopter belongs to our customer and we are not authorised to release any information"

If you are in the area it is definitely worth a visit. See my log from 2019 (https://www.scramble.nl/community/messa ... 63#p942463) and this year the SwissAF Twin Otter was there.

This has fueled my search again and just made an interesting discovery. I found these 3 pictures which would confirm that there are 3 on Lodrino, but there is only 1 with fitted floats just like the one outside. The YV2997
