Italian Air Force Frecce Tricolori

Known as the world's largest military aerobatic team, Frecce Tricolori can boast a display of 10 MB339 PAN (now designated AT-339A) jet trainers. The team was formally established in 1961 on the Canadair Sabre, and transitioned to the Fiat G91 three years later. It was with the G91 that the Frecce first attended the Air Tattoo, then staged at Greenham Common, in 1976. Conversion to the agile MB339 took place prior to the 1982 season. The Frecce are renowned for the spectacle of their displays, during which the soloist in particular shows something of the MB339's exceptional manoeuvrability. It has been announced that the team will convert onto another new aircraft, the M-345 HET (High Efficiency Trainer).
