Patrol Swiss lead pilot escapes disciplinary action
The lead pilot of the aerobatic team the Patrol Swiss, will not face any disciplinary action after the team performed above the wrong festival near Basel.
In a mishap that made headlines around the world, those attending a yodeling festival were treated to a stunning aerial show, while those 6km away celebrating the life of a Swiss aviation pioneer missed out.
Squadron leader Gunnar Jansen says he had been distracted for a few seconds by the appearance of an unauthorized helicopter in their airspace.
He says he saw a tent and believed that was where the team were meant to be.
