Aerial view on Meiringen AFB (picture taken from nearby "Rothorn" mountain at 2350m altitude) with beautiful autumn colors. You can clearly understand why they called this mountain (the one in the sun) "Rothorn" (some of the trees have a wonderfull brown-red color, this time of the year)! On the runway are three F-5E's (two from Patrouille Swiss and one in standard grey paint) having just started their take-off roll. The two taxiways leading to the famous shelters (i.e. caverns in the mountain) are also visible.
