The following pictures were taken during the air display of May 25 by Giovanni Maduli. Noteworthy, the P.180 suffering a tyre problem just after landing on RWY31, the Belgian F-16 pilot with an Italian flag, the images of the tactical event and the sequence of the Mi-24 realising flares.
More pictures dealing with the static display and the departures will be published in the next days.

Now i can send u my compliments to Giovanni….
On sunday the location was different together the public (200000 people).
Unfortunately the location of public and reporters was against the sunshine…no good.
Some people were discovered in the opposite side of the runway with the sun on back so in the afternoon they were able to take pictures without problem.
But this location was forbidden due to security reason… but we are in Italy….
