The World of XPILAR - CITYSCAPE PHOTOGRAPHY AND ART CONTEST WEEK #064 - Frecce Tricolore in Milan

Dear Steemians & dear fellow citizens of
๐ŸŒ The World of XPILAR ๐ŸŒ

The Frecce Tricolore (Three-colour Arrows) are the acrobatic team of the Italian Air Force. They perform very rarely, usually during great national celebrations, like the anniversary of the Italian Republic foundation on the 2nd of June, but last year they made many exceptions. The Italian population was the first in the western world to be hit by the Pandemic and suffered deeply throughout the whole 2020 and it is not looking much better now. The Frecce Tricolore could be seen all over the country to boost the spirit of the Italians. I took this picture in my city, Milan.

The planes you see in the picture are Aermacchi MB-339-A/PAN, a two-seat fighter-trainer craft capable of 898 km/h at sea level. With ten aircraft, nine in close formation and a soloist, they are the world's largest acrobatics patrol, and their flight schedule, comprising about twenty acrobatics and about half an hour, made them the most famous in the world. It is one of national symbols of Italy.

Beautiful photo, the combination of the beauty of old architecture and the Trocolore above on the sky. I bet the people enjoyed the spectacular event

Thank you very much @stef1 !! Yes, it was worth waiting in the heat for a little while before they show up, announcing themselves with a roar. I was not sure from which angle to take the picture, but eventually I decided to stand a bit far away and capture the whole scene. Lately I took more close ups!
