How about this: enough of the accident. It's in the past. What the Blue Angels never had an accident?, the Snowbirds never had fatal accidents? let's recognize the Frecce Tricolori team for what it is and the remarkable skills and incredible new talents they bring year after year. Check out some of the air show web sites from Europe they totally adore this team. Got over and get on with it! The Snowbirds (Canada) fly 9 aircraft as well, but the text on the main page should read largest, not highest.

Unfortunately[edit]

I think its their history, that they where the main cause of the catastrophy and they have to live with it!--134.76.234.75 15:34, 16 August 2006 (UTC)


"Unfortunately, many immediately associate the team's name with the Ramstein airshow disaster..." - not really. Give them some credit they keep winning the Royal International Air Tattoo award for best airshow! http://www.aeronautica.difesa.it/SitoAM/Default.asp?idnot=13483&idsez=1531&idarg=&idente=1398 actually ill just add that in


While the Blue Angels have suffered several fatal accidents over the years, none ever resulted in the death of a spectator, let alone over 70 of them in one pop - a pretty noteworthy distinction. Jmdeur (talk) 01:29, 15 April 2009 (UTC)

...Maybe the US aviators involved in the massacre of Cermis, neh? --Karanko (talk) 17:28, 7 June 2009 (UTC)

  • Maybe also because a) the blue angels do not fly with 10 aircraft during a single airshow and b) in comparison they rank as beginners at best c) prior the incident the show could take place basically above people's heads, today more stringent saftey precautions are taken to avoid such a disaster take place again including larger distances to be mantained between aircraft and also the crowd. So go blow your own horn elsewhere or simply do not speak of what you do not know.

Forza G[edit]

Wasn't the Italian film "Forza'G'" about the Frecce Tricolori? (I haven't seen it, but I thought I'd better look it up on wikipedia, with no luck)

File:Frecce Tricolori RIAT 2011.JPG to appear as POTD soon[edit]

Hello! This is a note to let the editors of this article know that File:Frecce Tricolori RIAT 2011.JPG will be appearing as picture of the day on January 7, 2013. You can view and edit the POTD blurb at Template:POTD/2013-01-07. If this article needs any attention or maintenance, it would be preferable if that could be done before its appearance on the Main Page so Wikipedia doesn't look bad. :) Thanks! howcheng {chat} 20:09, 6 January 2013 (UTC)

Frecce Tricolori
The Frecce Tricolori is the aerobatic demonstration team of the Italian Aeronautica Militare, based at Rivolto Air Force Base, in the Friuli Venezia Giulia region, province of Udine. They were formed in 1961 as an Air Force team, replacing unofficial teams that had been sponsored by various commands by the end of the 1920s.Photo: Łukasz Golowanow


First ¶[edit]

"...that had been sponsored by various commands by the end of the 1920s."

I respectfully suggest changing the second "by" to "since." Dick Kimball (talk) 14:29, 7 January 2013 (UTC)

History[edit]

During the 2000 aerobatic season they reached 50,000 flying hours on the MB-339.

I respectfully suggest that this could be clearer. Perhaps something like: "By the end of the 2000 aerobatic season the team had accumulated a total of 50,000 flight hours since being formed." I take it you mean 50,000 hours of actual performances; they undoubtedly require a great deal of additional flight time time practicing their maneuvers.

Name spelling[edit]

I have seen the name of this group rendered as "Flecce Tricolori". Is this an alternative spelling? A regionalism? A repeated reporter's goof? --Piledhigheranddeeper (talk) 15:39, 7 January 2013 (UTC)
