For the “Con la Diana sul petto” event, held in Cervia, on Apr. 16, 2010, Andrea Spagna (an amateur designer & collector with +4.000 examples) designed the patch that was worn by some of the crew chiefs and personnel of the GEA (Gruppo Efficienza Aeromobili, Aircraft Maintenance Unit).

The following pictures should let you understand how the “Bye Bye Falcon” and “Farewell Falcon” were born.
