Convoy to Remember 2016
The AFV ASSOCIATION was formed in 1964 to support the thoughts and research of all those interested in Armored Fighting Vehicles and related topics, such as AFV drawings. The emphasis has always been on sharing information and communicating with other members of similar interests; e.g. German armor, Japanese AFVs, or whatever.

Way to go Massimo!! Terrific photos, as usual!

What an amazing conglomeration of vehicles! It must've been a blast to see all that stuff.

Cheers,
VB

Next edition is going to be held in 2019. We have plenty of time to plan a gathering. If you book the plane ticket well in advance you may get a decent bargain Smile

... well, 2019 hasn't been confirmed yet. It's not sure if the land property will be available:

See official Website:
«Noch ist nicht klar, ob die 20-jährige Erfolgsgeschichte des Convoy to Remember eine Fortsetzung findet. Das grösste Problem für die Organisatoren ist jeweils die Verfügbarkeit des Geländes, wo im grossen Stil Gemüsebau und Kiesabbau betrieben wird. Der Goodwill dieser Eigentümer war und ist sehr gross. Weil sich aber besonders die grosse Kiesgrube laufend verändert, ist nicht klar, ob sich das Gelände in drei Jahren für die Durchführung des nächsten Convoy eignen wird.»

Maybe the most impressive performance was this L-5, literally landing between two broccoli fields Smile

The Stinson pilot is a retired guy, former Swiss Air Force and Swissair pilot, his age is almost the same as his plane Smile
