The Two Bobs Saanen Flight

In addition to amateur radio and shortwave, Bob Thomann’s other passion was glider flying. And one of the highlights of the Two Bobs broadcast calendar was the annual summer glider camp Bob Thomann attended at Saanen, just around the corner from the world-famous resort of Gstaad in the Bernese Oberland. It was there that the Two Bobs met every year to record a special series of programs.

In late spring 1987, Bob Thomann and Bob Zanotti took off from Bern Airport for a motor glider flight to Saanen, just to set the scene.
