In my newest film the former East German Air Force's MiG-29 plays a big role - during the exercise FULCA (FULcrum CAmpaign) in 2002 nearly all german MiG-29 where visiting Dübendorf AB near Zurich.
The JG73 'Steinhoff' trained Dissimular Air Combats against Hornets and Tigers over the Swiss Alps.






A handful of the mighty MiG's visited again for one night in 2003 for the premiere of Swiss Air Force's movie "Identified", where they played the enemies.
Here a link to the extract of this movie with some spectacular footage out of the MiGs and Hornets - and of Swiss Air Force's old Hornet-Simulator.






Fasten your seatbelts and enjoy the biggest glacier of europe - Wikipedia says about it :
Quote
The Aletsch Glacier (German: Aletschgletscher) or Great Aletsch Glacier (German: Grosser Aletschgletscher) is the largest glacier in the Alps. It has a length of about 23 km and covers more than 120 square kilometres (more than 45 square miles) in the eastern Bernese Alps in the Swiss canton of Valais. The Aletsch Glacier is composed by three smaller glaciers converging at Concordia, where its thickness is estimated to be near 1 km. It then continues towards the Rhone valley before giving birth to the Massa river.

The whole area, including other glaciers is part of the Jungfrau-Aletsch Protected Area, which was declared a UNESCO World Heritage site in 2001.

The scene with the Hornet raced by the Mig was taken near Concordia.

Muuuuhhh - welcome in the land of milk and chocolate
