The curiosity of the Milanese for the aircraft that made several laps over the city. These are the general rehearsals for the exhibition during the Formula 1 Italian Grand Prix

A passenger plane and two fighters over Milan aroused the curiosity of the inhabitants who wondered what was happening in the Lombard skies. But what some have speculated could be an escorted aircraft for safety reasons in reality the first day of rehearsal of the Frecce Tricolori exhibition with one of the Ita Airways aircraft Sunday shortly before Formula 1 Italian Grand Prix scheduled for Sunday 11 September in Monza.

The aircraft

Ita’s plane, a latest generation Airbus A350 with the special Born to be sustainable livery (born to be sustainable, ed), took off from Rome Fiumicino airport at 2.40 pm according to specialized sites that track flights. At 3.26 pm, south of Milan, he began to make some laps at about 5,000 feet of altitude (1,524 meters) at a speed of 460 kilometers per hour.

The laps

About twenty minutes after the A350 went towards east Milan where above the Linate airport it made other laps – at 1,220 meters above sea level – this time escorted by a pair of Aermacchi MB-339PAN belonging to the National Air Force aerobatic team military better known as Frecce Tricolori. But what the hell is happening in the skies of East Milan? – asks a user on Twitter -. A white plane continues to fly in a circle above the Linate area and pairs of fighter planes continue to pass. Now they are escorting him towards the Alps north of Milan.

The program

The latter will accompany the Ita aircraft over the Monza circuit on Sunday afternoon just before the green light of the Italian Grand Prix. After a few laps the Ita Airways plane headed towards Rome Fiumicino. Friday will be the second rehearsal session.
