A formation of 4 or 5 jets flew over our place about an hour ago. Probably tattoo related.

Re: loud crashing like sound

oh, I wanted to see Basel Tattoo one year. Is it correct that they have it every second year? Or is there a Tattoo anywere else in Switzerland as well?

Re: loud crashing like sound

It is the Patrouille Suisse.

Am surprised that it was Tattoo related as they were doing stuff near us in Ettingen area. But apparently it is according to their website.

Don't worry about the crashing noise. That was my wife dropping the ironing board.

Re: loud crashing like sound

Nope. It was related to the Basel Tattoo (see their website http://www.lw.admin.ch/internet/luft.../airshows.html).

We often get to see their Dittingen displays as they regroup over our house, and it was my initial thought until I checked their site.
