Airshow del Garda 2023 - Desenzano, Italy 10/9/23

Post by Dysko »

The city of Desenzano del Garda (on the shores of Lake Garda, Italy) hosted Airshow del Garda 2023 on Saturday 9th and Sunday 10th September. Desenzano was the host of the Reparto Sperimentale Alta Velocità (Experimental High Speed Detachment), which tested the seaplanes which would have been used for the Schneider Trophy and for speed records.

It should have been my penultimate airshow of the season. I should have attended an airshow in Turin one week later, unfortunately it was understandably canceled due to the Frecce Tricolori crash which cost the life of a 5-year old girl.

From neighbouring Ghedi airbase's 6° Stormo, fly-bys by a Tornado IDS (the one without sharkmouth and the targeting pod under the fuselage) and a Tornado ECR (the one with the sharkmouth and without cannon, with an inert AGM-88 HARM training anti-radar missile under the fuselage), with an F-35A flown by the first F-35-rated woman in Italy alternating between them

Closing the show, the Frecce Tricolori. Unfortunately, there was no wind at all, and due to the thick smoke it was impossible to take decent photos of most of their display.

Nice shots, the Tornado passes are very cool and I love the angle on the second Zlin Savage photo!

"Unfortunately, there was no wind at all, and due to the thick smoke it was impossible to take decent photos of most of their display."

Cor, doesn't that sound familiar!
