48 Hour Photo Comp: Penne for your thoughts?

Post by Tommy »

Cheers to PReoch for the nod in the previous thread.

I’ve no idea if this is been done or not, but this one’s quite simple:

Show my your best images of an aircraft that is (or was at the time of the photo) in Italian service.

I’ll apply a broad definition - it can be air force, army, navy, government VIP, manufacturers, airlines, the various civil agencies like Guardia di Finanza etc - as long as it has an Italian civil or military registration at the time of the photo, that’ll do. I’ll also stretch to allow things such as Merlins fully marked as Italian (but with a G-Reg) test flying at Yeovil prior to delivery or things transiting through the U.K. on delivery. You get the idea.

Usual three shots per person.

Only active aircraft at the time the photo was taken ?
No warbirds / museum pieces ?

Yeah, I suppose museum pieces, gate guards, planes on sticks etc are all good. 👍🏻

I’ll also take U.K. based stuff in an Italian scheme like that bright Orange SF260 or the gorgeous Super Cub based at Sleap.

The point is, I won’t split hairs for the sake of it 🙂

I've gone for images representing three different arms of the Italian military...

Starting with the Army, with the first and only A129 Mangusta I've photographed. A rather odd machine...
Image

Next up, my most recent Italian Air Force photograph. I was lucky enough to photograph this T-346A from the Skyvan last week, on it's flight home from Athens Flying Week.
Image

Finally, selected for its badass Guardia di Finanza colour scheme, this AW169 was on static display at Zeltweg.

Cervia 1995. This G-91R was the 5 Stormo 'mascot' and painted in 2 schemes, 1 on each side.
One week after this, it was painted in standard camo, and roaded to Vigna di Valle national collection :anguished:

Not in the competition.....but they turned it around, putting the other scheme in the sun.... :grinning:

Excellent stuff, guys.

Really torn on this one (as I’m sure every comp judge is!)

Shoutout to Caper’s F-104, Xkekeith’s Chinook, Spiney’s Tornado, & Plison’s Ferrari Starf (which is probably a close second!).

But I’m going to have to give it to Derek and his C-47. What an amazing looking machine! Over to you, mate. 👍🏻
