In the last few days, the new Frecce Tricolori’s 50th Anniversary promo was unveiled. The video, was recorded and produced entirely in Rivolto Airbase by the Pattuglia Acrobatica Nazionale, with the help of the Reparto Sperimentale Volo (the ItAF Test Wing), for the first time shows the unique images taken from special, internal and external microcameras. The video can be found here:

The following images show the microcamera that was attached to one of the aircraft (the MM54479/”0″, that later became “50” to celebrate the Anniversary) before the Frosinone airshow. As the first picture shows, the upper part of the tail (with a light blue colour) was completely removed/replaced to attach the equipment needed to shoot footage for the promo.
