A Very Special Air Show at Boglietto Airfield

In the skies of the scenic Monferrato hills (Italy), on October 8, 2006, the third 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. The sunny day attracted a large public and favoured the success of the show, offering the emotion of the first flight to more than 150 people.
To perform the compelling task, the members of the Boglietto “campo volo” used a number of their light sport aircraft, ultralights and flexwing microlights, supported by other aircraft coming from nearby airfields, including an hot-air balloon and an airship operated by Balloon Promotion. An outstanding aerobatic exhibition was also performed by Paolo Zoppi with his CAP 10B.
