Varazze Airshow from David Cenciotti's weblog - the most visited Italian Aviation Blog by David Cenciotti
A few days ago I discussed about airshows performed above the surface of the water (see Air displays above the water: a "risky business"?). A really interesting air display is scheduled for Sept. 20 in Varazze, a village located on the sea about 30 chilometers to the West of Genoa and some 11 chilometers to the Northeast of Savona. The Cdr of the local harbour is the M.llo 2^ Cl. Np Roberto FERRARI of the Capitanerie di Porto (Italian Coast Guard), who's an expert in maritime navigation safety and NBC defence. Since he's responsible for the harbour security during the airshow, he's part of the team that has organized the show. The airshow is going to be attended by an Alenia M346, an Ericcson S-64 Skycrane, a Coast Guard AB.412, a P180 of the Piaggio company, a SOREM C:415 and by the Frecce Tricolori display team. Rehearsals will take place on Sept. 18. Roberto provided a lot of information and documents about the airshow and he granted me the permission to publish them, along with the (provisional) programme.

Two of America's Finest from Technorati
The boys and I went to the Czech Air show last week. It was great to see the F-16 in action and some of the other planes at the airshow. After seeing the Gripen Fighter that the Czech Republic not long ago purchased, instead of the F-16 that they could have purchased, I'm not sure why they chose the Gripen other than for political reasons? The F-16 seemed to be a far superior aircraft. It seemed to have greater speed, maneuverability, greater defensive abilities, and etc. But that was only from ...
