Rivolto Frecci 50th Aniversary Show

Rivolto Frecci 50th Aniversary Show

Postby Kevin Martin on Wed 15 Sep 2010, 5:32 pm

Hi all;

Last weekend I headed to Rivolto air base in Italy for a chance to see some seemingly rare nowadays Italian Air Force hardware in action. With most of Europe’s elite display teams also taking part in the Frecci Tricolori’s 50th anniversary show it promised to be a good weekend of action. In a fantastic setting with some glorious weather I ‘m sure no one was left disappointed.

These are a selection of photo’s from both show days so I hope you enjoy…..

Thanks for looking;

Has any air force actually ordered any of these as the prototypes seem to have been around for ever?

Image

And of course the Frecci Tricolori themselves in a past and current form….

Thanks again,

Kevin

Very nice shots. I was thinking of going to this one at the begining of the year, but opted for the Malmen show in Sweden instead.
What a great backdrop Rivolto has, not to mention the best display team in the world.... only my own opinion... :smile:

Lovely shots far better than my own. A great show. Only omission appears to be Flat Eric flying with the Swiss who unless I am mistaken appears to be wearing a Red Arrows flight suit.

A few years ago, the Reds stole Flat Eric during a show and returned a while later with a Red Arrows flightsuit.
