Switzerland. Canton Ticino. Cureglia is a municipality in the district of Lugano. "Tiratori del Gaggio" society. Shooting range. A manga wind flying ( compulsory by the law) indicates to people living around or passing by that shooting is occurring during the day. A swiss flag flies in the air. The flag of Switzerland displays a white cross in the centre of a square red field. The white cross is known as the Swiss cross (German: das Schweizerkreuz, French: la croix suisse, Italian: la croce svizzera, Romansh: la crusch svizra). Contrails (condensation trails) are line-shaped clouds produced by aircraft engine exhaust or changes in air pressure, typically at aircraft cruise altitudes several kilometers above the Earth's surface. Contrails are composed primarily of water, in the form of ice crystals. The combination of water vapor in aircraft engine exhaust and the low ambient temperatures that exist at high altitudes allows the formation of the trails. 9.02.2019 © 2019 Didier Ruef
