Swiss Patrol to participe to the Gordon Bennett (St-Gallen)

I just read in the newspaper that the Swiss Patrol will participate this saturday to the Gordon Bennett cup in Ebnat-Kappel (SG)

The 6 F-5 tigers take off from Payern around 5.05 pm and be back around 6.10 pm.

They will show their program at 5.30 pm.

(if you don't know what is the Gordon Bennett cup it's the world oldest gas ballon race, started in 1906, which is also something interesting....)
