Post subject: Air Show in Locarno (Switzerland)

We've got a nice little airshow, just 30 minutes away from my home. Was a good way to wet our appetite for the big airshow that will be held in September in Payerne (I already booked the hotel).

I don't have long lenses (my camera kit is designed for AFVs...), but I managed to get a few shots.
Let's start with a Bf 108:

There are quite a few flying Buckers in Switzerland, even if around half of them don't have original engines. There also was a team display at the airshow, I'll post pictures later on.

Another rare bird. There are two of them in flying condition, this has Swiss markings, the other one has French markings, but they are both Swiss, MS 406 build under license in Switzerland:
