Invasion?? The Air Force is here already...

I am just sitting at Kloten Airport and there must have been about half a dozen WWII planes doing flyovers and landings here, this morning we even had a plane that looked like a Douglas C-47 Dakota start from here - just now there is a Tomcat landing (I think, not sure)

What is going on? Do we need to re-build the Reduit?? Or just some airshow being held this weekend?

Could be an event organised by the AF center Dübendorf.

I think the Nuclear Reactor has caused a localised rip in the fabric of time. What you are seeing is past echoes. Is there a storm nearby ?

A couple of bombers with fighter escorts have just come accross the German border here in Northern Aargau.

I think I've got enough frozen meat in the Luftschutzkeller to last it out....

I just heard a radio announcement - you are not allowed to stockpile Arromat - it must be serious

Military old-timer meeting with various types flying from ZRH in support. The C-47 Dakota being one of them.

I don't think so bud unless it was Iranian! The last US Navy F-14s flew in 2006 and the Iranians still manage to keep a few flying with their Air Force despite an arms embargo on spares.
