Air to air with an SF.260 over Essex, 07-07-2019

This extremely nice SF.260 visited my very local strip, Rayne Hall Farm last weekend and on Sunday I got the chance to take some air to air photos of it after it took off to fly back home to Germany. It really was my lucky day!!!!!

a superb immaculate aircraft! It's ex Mexican Air Force and the guy bought it and shipped it to Europe. He and his co-pilot bought the airfield owner's Firefly about 3 years ago and decided to come over to visit the airfield for the weekend. They plan to be back again in September so hopefully a few more pics then.
There are a few more and some ground shots of it on my flickr page.

thanks and yes, superb little aircraft.

The Italians build nice aircraft as well as cars and this certainly had a very sporty performance.
