Ciao! Italian Air Force Aerobatic Team set to fly over Vancouver this summer

Keep an eye on the sky this summer because the world’s largest acrobatics patrol is heading to Canada and will fly over Vancouver.

The Italian Air Force Aerobatic Team, known as Frecce Tricolori, will fly to Canada and the United States this summer for the first time in more than 30 years.

The multifaceted tour will include a series of events and flyovers, including one over Vancouver on Tuesday, July 16.

“The North America Tour will be an opportunity to organize a redeployment thousands of kilometres away from Italy and to share the values, technology, professionalism and teamwork skills of the Italian Air Force, through a journey in stages between Canada and the United States,” the consulate general of Italy in Toronto writes.

“The tour will also be an opportunity to represent Italy in the world and foster Made in Italy overseas.”

The tour will kick off with a performance on June 22 in Bagotville, Quebec, to celebrate with Canada the 100th anniversary of the Royal Canadian Airforce.

The Frecce Tricolori will then fly over Vancouver on July 16. The exact time and location of their flyover have yet to be announced, but we will share details as soon as they become available.
