On Jun. 8, 2009, during my visit to Trapani airbase for the roll out of the two F-16 ADFs (MM7240 and MM7249) painted in special colour schemes to celebrate the 1000 Flight Hours achieved by both commanders of the 10° and 18° Gruppo, Maj. Salvatore “Cheero” Ferrara and Maj. Maurizio “Masa” De Angelis I had the opportunity to visit the X Gruppo builing, where I found at least a couple of pictures I took flying with the 9-99 F-104 Ducati Special Colour back in 2003.
