The editorial team of StampNews.com has got the information about the issue of a new Italian stamp dedicated to the National Aeronautic Team.

The Frecce Tricolori (Italian, literally Tricolour Arrows), officially known as the Pattuglia Acrobatica Nazionale (National Acrobatic Patrol), is the aerobatic demonstration team of the Italian Military Aeronautics, based in the north-eastern Italian region. They were formed in 1961 as an Air Force team, replacing unofficial teams that had been sponsored by various commands by the end of the 1920s.

The team flies the Aermacchi MB-339-A/PAN, a two-seat fighter-trainer craft capable of 898 km/h at sea level, with nine aircraft and a solo (the highest number of aircraft of any aerobatic team in the world).
