Axalp Fliegerschiessen 2021, the yearly live shooting event of the Swiss Air Force at the Ebenfluh Shooting Range near Axalp in 2021 will take place later one week later than its usual date this year. The event is planned on Wednesday 20 October 2021 and Thursday 21 October 2021. The training day will take place on Tuesday 19 October 2021. If the Axalp Fliegerschiessen 2021 will go through, is of course for 100% dependant on the developments of the Coronavirus. The Swiss Air Force will be very cautious to ensure that the event can be held without any risk to the spectators and army personnel. 

Swiss Air Force displays

The shooting event is officially called Axalp Flugvorf├╝hrungen der Schweizer Luftwaffe (Swiss Air Force Displays). For years they took place in the second week of October. Potentially this can impact the conditions on the mountain a little bit. This is due to the fact The change of snow on the summits increases with every week in October. I am currently trying to find out if the change of date has to do with COVID-19 or something else. I will update as soon as I know more.
