Just managed to get all the serials and here you are, the Swiss Air Force deployment to RAF Lossiemouth lasting from 13/11/2017 until early/12/2017. I've listed the aircraft arriving in airframe serials order. However they landed in the order of Swiss 510A/B/C/D, Swiss 514A/B/C and Swiss 518A/B.

Swiss 510C - J-5005 - F-18C
Swiss 518A - J-5006 - F-18C
Swiss 510D - J-5013 - F-18C
Swiss 510B - J-5014 - F-18C
Swiss 514B - J-5015 - F-18C
Swiss 518B - J-5018 - F-18C (Special Markings)
Swiss 514C - J-5026 - F-18C

Swiss 510A - J-5232 - F-18D
Swiss 514A - J-5233 - F-18D

THe support ground crew/ spare aircrew (55 personnel in total) were flown in onboard a Helvetic ERJ190-100LR "HB-JVM"

Rumour now has it, that the Lossie based Swiss F18,s flying to a fixed schedule of daytime flying this week (13th - 17th) 1130, 1430 and 1730. Week commencing 20th November night flying 1530, 1830 and 2130. New change of crews over weekend of 25-26th week commencing 27th November 1130, 1430 and 1730 depart week commencing 4th December 1530, 1830 and 2130 depart for RTB Switzerland.
