look closely at the swiss flag and you will see green and orange of the tri clolour behind it. it's just temporary as the pc-9's are still on the swiss register!

Hi Guys,

The reason for the Swiss flag on the tail is simple. As far as I am aware any Swiss registered aircraft must have the Swiss flag displayed on the aircraft, it's a bit like a ship having to fly the flag of whatever country it's registered in.

As for the temporary HB-XXX reg, that seems to be one of a bank of registrations used by Pilatus while testing out their aicraft, I looked up one of these reg's trying to get more info on the Irish aircraft and I got info back on either an Aussie or Slovenian (can't remember which country exactly) aircraft that had used the same reg previously.


Regards,

Frank.
