Italy’s equivalent of America’s Blue Angels is called the Frecce Tricolori, or Tricolor Arrows.

Otherwise known by its official name, the 313th Gruppo Addestramento Acrobatico, the aerobatic team celebrates its 50th anniversary this year.

The squad recently brought the smoke and cartwheels with its fleet of Aeromacchi MB-339 jets, while Pagani added a little extra “hoo-ha” by taking its special edition Tricolore Zonda to the Rivolti Air Force base for some fun-and-games.

As usual, there’s artistic beauty everywhere.
