Flying expedition to Nepal.

The Swiss were the first to use a transport plane for a climbing expedition in the Himalayas. The PC-6 Pilatus Porter provided support for the first successful ascent of Dhaulagiri in 1960. Now two Swiss pilots have embarked in the same adventure flight to the Himalayas. (SF-swissinfo)
