Flight Triengen — Samedan

Aerial pictures taken during a flight from the foggy lowlands of Switzerland to the sunny, snowy Engadin for a lunch. We flew with a Rockwell Commander from Moonlight Air. Some air layers were full with ice crystals and caused pretty optical phenomena like a colorful glory. A few weeks later a private jet made a crash landing in Samedan due to the many snow. The two pilots died in that accident. Sunday, January 4, 2009, 54 photos.
