OMG!
The only swiss b-25 is in danger because it has no longer an hangar! The hangar's howner has rised the price of it to 60000.- ( thats 6x the price they payed since now ) Swiss francs per year and the JAF dont have the money for this! So this baby has to face snow and rain....this is so sad and not fair!!

Move it to Spain or somewhere with a better climate and cheaper storage costs.

Cut it into scrap and sell it. Then we can all enjoy the plane as soda cans and aluminium foil, and the owner gets some booze money.

The 6x price jump means the owner wants 'em out for a reason. Too bad the warbird got caught in the middle. The 'Texas Raider' kinda went thru that too.

I agree, such a huge increase in the rent means the property owner thinks he can get more money by doing something else with the property.

well its a question to "have a b-25". the problem isnt if it is swiss or not : im sure any one would be proud to own a B-25. This team have the chance to have one of the only 3 europe flaying b-25 and they spend money and time to make it fly and give people the possibility to watch this pice of history fly in the sky. It also flew at Duxford and over England for the Queen. Yes i have the chance that it is swiss, so i can move and go watch it on the tarmak: but the quetio in that ,for no reasons, this beauty is in danger...and i think that loosing a b-25 isnt a good thing...i mean, not only us will loose something but also other people in others country because if it will no longer fly..well you wont never saw it again.
