Due to the international participation for this photoshoot the text is for once in english.
It all started on Sunday evening after arriving back in Grenchen with a Stinson L-5. As a big surprise, beside the two resident DC-3 there was a third one on the tarmac. Quickly I recognized it is N74589 "Placid Lassie" which flew over the Atlantic as a part of the D-Day squadron to commemorate the 75. D-Day anniversary in the Normandie.
After that she made a little tour through Europe with Stops in Tannheim, Salzburg and Venice, before heading to Switzerland.
After cleaning our Stinson and sitting in the restaurant with a cold beer, the crew arrived and the events took their course. Suddenly everything was organized and we met again the next morning to prepare a sightseeing flight for the American Crew with their old lady, accompanied by two Beech 18.
It was a pleasure to have you here, thank you for visiting Switzerland.
