A special word about the South Africans. The box which the Junior Champion trophy was housed is a work of art. I'll see if I can take some pictures. We made it back safely with the box. Joseph hand carried it on the plane and did not let it stray more than a few feet at any given time. A great story about our experiences with British Airways. No costs for any shipping of any planes or trophy or support equipment. We did have to spend an extra time going through security for them to carefully examine the equipment.

Some pictures of the excursions. Michael, a local modeler was really nice and gave us a personal tour of the country of Switzerland. Be on the lookout for him at the upcoming jet world masters!
