In a few days, March 28 to be exact, the Italian air force will be celebrating 100 years.
The Aeronautica Militare, the modern Italian air force, was formed as the Regia Aeronautica in 1923. It was given its modern name following the Second World War.
Here’s a few photos of modern Italian air force aircraft I’ve snapped here and there:

Great aircraft photography. I’d love to be up in the air in one of them. 😊
And not a biplane in sight. Cracking shots – even an F-35!
I’ve only ever seen modern Italian stuff, and not even so much of that. One day, I might get myself down to Italy and check out some of their air museums.
