Swiss Jet Photos And YouTube Fighter Jet Videos!

Here in our Jet Photos/Jet Photography section, you will find some cool jet photos that have been taken in Switzerland. The jets are from the Swiss Air Force, and they call themselves the Patrouille Suisse.

Patrouille Suisse Northrop F-5E Tiger II Jets

The Patrouille Suisse's jets are 6 beautiful red and white Northrop F-5E Tiger II Jet Aircraft. The Patrouille Suisse was founded during ‘Expo 64’ the national exhibition in Lausanne in 1964. For the past 17 years, the Patrouille Suisse has been based in Emmen, Switzerland, next to Luzern Switzerland.

The small airport in Emmen, Switzerland, allows spectators to get incredibly close to the jets, during take-offs and landings and during their practise aerobatics programs. There is actually a bike/walking path that passes right over the runway, so when you hear the alarm beeping and lights flashing, you better get your tail off the runway fast, or you might get run over by a fighter jet.

The first time I went to the airport to take some jet photos during the Patrouille Suisse practise/fanclub aerobatics programs, I almost got my ear drums blow out. I was standing right next to the gate on the bike path that crosses the runway, about a couple hundred feet away from the jets, and then they hit the throttle and starting taking off.

Remember Ear Plugs When Photographing Near Jets

I tried taking some photos, but the jet engines were so loud, I had to forget about the photos and just cover and protect my ears or they would have been damaged for sure. Another guy was there taking photos also, and he had an extra pair of very old worn out ear muffs, that he let me use, but the seal around my ears was gone, so they didn't do too much. It never crossed my mind that I should bring some ear plugs with me, well needless to say, I never forgot my ear plugs again.

I've never been so close to jets, so being able to get within a couple hundred feet of them taking off and landing is very cool. One problem with being so close while taking photos, is that it is hard to follow the jets with your camera, because of the speed of the jets and their proximity, especially if you aren't using a wide angle lens.

Some of these photos were taken right out of our apartments window, because I forgot that they were flying, so I had to settle with just taking some photos from our apartment. It's pretty cool having a free fighter jet air show over our apartment once or twice a month. One little boy in the neighborhood didn't enjoy the jets though, he would cover his ears and run screaming into his apartment when the jets flew really close and very loudly over our apartments.

The Patrouille Suisse Swiss Air Force Jet Team will be flying again in a couple weeks, I made sure I wrote it on my calendar, but I might not be able to make it to the airport, because my wife is due with our first child the same day the jets fly, so we'll see how that all works out.
