Back in the 1960s a Swissair DC-8 flies over the Matterhorn in a classic airline publicity picture.

Flashback to the early days. This is the DH Dragon Rapide which was in service in 1939.
Swissair was the first airline to use the Fokker 100 which has proved a big success in service. Here one of the first aircraft takes off on its delivery flight from the Fokker airfield.
