When I heard about the ‘Frecce Tricolori’ (lit. ‘Tricolor Arrows’) coming to Pesaro this Summer I could hardly believe it! My beloved 313° Gruppo Addestramento Acrobatico, the aerobatic team of the Italian Aeronautica Militare, was actually scheduled to perform in Pesaro on July 31st.
I’ve planned several times to visit their Rivolto Air Force Base, in the north-eastern region of Friuli Venezia Giulia but sofar I’ve never managed to make this dream come true (who knows? maybe next September).
Anyway, I went to see their performances in Falconara and Fano in the past, and did not miss their ‘rehearsal’ in Pesaro last Friday when they performed using ‘just’ the white smoke. And, of course, I was there yesterday, one hour before the show began, to get the best view on their amazing show performed – this time – using tricolor smoke (green, white and red: the colors of the Italian Flag).
The team flies the Aermacchi MB-339-A/PAN and they are totally out of their minds! Their show is breath-taking and makes me proud to be Italian 🙂
The pictures I took speak for themselves, even if I took them with a non-professional camera.
25 minutes of non-stopping awe till the very end of their show, when the team flies away towards the horizon line with Luciano Pavarotti singing ‘Nessun dorma’ from Puccini’s ‘Turandot’.
