Boglietto Airfield Air Show 2007

In the skies of the scenic Monferrato hills (Italy), on October 7, 2007, the fourth edition of “Disabili Volando Insieme” air show was held. This peculiar aviation event, organized at the Costigliole d’Asti (Boglietto) airfield not far from Turin, is fully devoted to provide an aviation experience to handicapped people and to raise funds for various Charity Organizations such as AIMO, ANGLAT, APRI, CEPIM Autoaiuto, Centro Servizi Volontariato Asti and Alessandria, CISA, Pegaso and Unione Italiana Ciechi. The sunny day attracted a large public and favoured the success of the show, offering the emotion of the flight to more than 250 people.
To perform the compelling task, the members of the Boglietto “campo volo” used thirteeen of their light sport aircraft, ultralights and flexwing microlights, supported by other aircraft coming from nearby airfields, including an hot-air balloon. During the afternoon, some aircraft and an Angel ultralight helicopter performed a series of flight displays, together with powered paragliders and aircraft models. Three pilots of the “Papere Vagabonde” Flight Club made an outstanding flight display with their Texans, in different tight formations.
