Swiss Air Force Patrouille Suisse

As the only European jet display team to fly aircraft equipped with reheat, the Swiss Air Force Patrouille Suisse are a welcome addition to the 2020 Air Tattoo. Flying their six Cold War-era Northrop F-5E Tiger II fighters, the team's motto is "Precision - Safety - Perfection" which they have showcased over their previous 55 display seasons when they performed in the tight mountainous valleys of Switzerland on numerous occasions. Famous for flying the Hawker Hunter prior to transferring to the F-5 in the mid-1990s; the team are destined to once again change aircraft type with the industry competition to replace the F-5 in Swiss Air Force service being in full swing, what they will fly in the future however is currently uncertain.
