Sion 27th August 1989

We visited Sion the day after Dubendorf Show. There were a large number of Vampires in open storage and in the adjacent open hangar. Can anyone assist with the serials please.
Thanks
Jim

I meant to add: the 'BAR' report's list is divided into Vampire FB.6 and T.55, but it doesn't identify which aircraft were outside and which were hangared.

I had a list of all the Vampires we saw at Essen and Sion, but your list of Vampires enabled me to pull out the likely Sion ones. We had recorded 32 of the Vampires that were on your Sion list, so it proved very useful to be able to put the location into the database log
Thanks for your research.
