Daniel and Christian Schweizer in Trencin two weeks before the accident.
On September 3, at the end of the CS/SM 1998 Christian and Daniel Schweizer
died in an accident during the ferry to Ticino of the P-51 Mustang “Temptation”, HB-RCW (former F-AZJM).
Probably the saddest day of all aerobatic history in Switzerland.
Considering the SR 111 crash near Halifax on September 2, this was probably the saddest week in swiss aviation history.

The CS/SM 2005 was disturbed by the accident (30.08.2005) of the Captain Jean-Michel Delorme (EVAA) during the “Championnats de France de Voltige” in St-Yan : his Cap 232 was destroyed in flight due to a mechanical rupture. All Cap 231/232 were immediately grounded. All the swiss pilots were very concerned by this dramatic and exceptionally rare accident.
