... and I would like to ask El Reg to ban everyone who posts pointing out what has accualy happend. Please ban anyone with a comedy bypass.
A certain Harry Lime once famously explained that "in Italy for 30 years under the Borgias they had warfare, terror, murder, and bloodshed, but they produced Michelangelo, Leonardo da Vinci, and the Renaissance", whereas in Switzerland they had "brotherly love ... 500 years of democracy and peace, and what did that produce?

are actually made in the Black Forest (Schwarzwald) in Germany, but feel free to perpetuate the Swiss myth which apparently started with a Mark Twain story.
Emmental and Gruyère cheese and far-right unfriendly politics are made in Switzerland. Even the Swiss Army Knife (Offiziersmesser) was originally German. The watches were English. (Rolex is an English company started by a German...)

The swiss had the good sense to export terror on the rest of Europe. Their mercenaries were highly regarded through the 14th - 16th centuries.
There's only so much excitement you can take, so its hardly surpising if all they wanted to do was come home and listen to a cuckoo clock after killing half of Europe.

the shadow belongs to a plane (possibly a Falcon 2000) thats taking off - its visible over the runway SW of the shadow.
and the original "invisible" plane (possibly 737-500) has a companion in a similar position 90 degrees CCW of that terminal - looks like a 737-300. it looks like both of those were parked at the terminal, and the gate has been swung away from them to allow them to depart.
the plane with multiple wings could possibly be an A320 - no idea what could possibly be causing all these weird effects though.
All is now (semi) revealed..
Its not a stealth airliner, its a flying magnifying glass, used to melt rival nations ski fields, raise sea levels and render coastal population centers uninhabitable.
Global warming is just another part of the conspiracy fronted by the Gnomes of Zurich.
I wonder how many goats they sacrifice to keep it flying ?
