14th Wing of the Aeronautica Militare Italiana
At the beginning of June we had the opportunity to fly aboard of an KC767A from the 14th Wing on a AAR mission just outside of the Adriatic Shoreline. It really was an advantaged point to observe the wing operation, based at Pratica Di Mare (Roma), as this is one of the main activity of the unit, along with advanced training for the multiengine aircraft like P180, C-130J, C-27J and of course the KC-767A. Soon it will also receive two G550 modified in Israel for CAEW&C operation under the same deal that brought the M346 Master as the main training platform for the Israel Defence Force.
Once ended the AAR operation we cleared the zone of operation towards Pratica Di Mare. We would like to thanks for such an occasion Capt M.Seri from the Public Relation office of the Stato Maggiore dell’Aeronautica and the First M.llo M. Martina from the 14th Wing without whom our flight wouldn’t be possible.
