Zonda Tricolore

Description

Zonda Tricolore

On the occasion of the celebration of the 50th Anniversary of the “Frecce Tricolori” in 2010, Pagani Automobili created the Zonda Tricolore as a tribute to the National Aerobatic Team.

The Frecce Tricolori (literally: Tricolour Arrows), known as the 313th Aerobatic Training Squadron, is the official airborne demonstration team of the Italian Air Force, based at Rivolto Air Force Base in the north-eastern Italian region of Friuli Venezia-Giulia, province of Udine.

They were formed in 1961 as an Air Force team, replacing previous teams that had come one after another from as far back as the late 1920s.

The team flies the Aermacchi MB-339-A/PAN, a two-seat aircraft capable of reaching a speed of 898 km/h at sea level. With 10 aircraft (of which 9 under formation) plus a solo, they form the most numerous aerobatics team in the world.

The Frecce Tricolori belong to the legacy of the entire Italian community.
