On board the SCFA/Breitling Super Connie during the "Gern ab Bern" flight on 9th August 2014. This was a one and a quarter hour round trip from Bern, flying over a good third or so of Switzerland and all of it along the tops of mountain valleys; a truly unforgettable and amazing experience! And I've now (14th August 2014) uploaded to YouTube, one of the short videos I took during the flight-here's the link: www.youtube.com/watch?v=2OywL3Y01tM

as beautiful as air-liners get..
