When you think of Switzerland, you may think of several things such as: cheese, army knives, or huge mountains. One thing you certainly don’t arrive at immediately would be airplanes, and why would you? Switzerland has a long history in aviation and is certainly well-known for its neutrality, but that doesn’t mean that they’re simply a dark, undeveloped, aviation black-hole in the middle of Europe. In fact, they’ve got an airport that just celebrated it’s 75th anniversary.
Locarno airport in Switzerland, just a short distance north of Milan, Italy, put on an airshow from May 31st to June 1st showcasing some beautiful and historic aircraft from WWII.
