Swiss Military Flying Horses Exercise
 By Winniefield Park   •   3rd May 2021   •   946 views   •   0 comments


These flying horses donít have wings. They are airborne thanks to a military exercise carried out in Switzerland. Veterinarians teamed up with the Swiss army to test various ways to use helicopters to airlift injured horses, one, two, and three at a time. Special harnesses and body and leg protection were used to move the horses without undue stress.
