One of the most famous aerobatic teams in the world are the Frecce Tricolori. Their Italian MB339s are
beautifully caught at Zeltweg in this late evening picture.

Flying only: F-GSTD/4 A300B4-608ST Airbus Transport 6x Saab 105Ö FlRgt 3 The Saabs were flying from Linz and some confusion exists about their identity. On Friday some people had a base visit at Linz and saw the following Saabs during take-off: YB-02, YG-07, GB-12, GD-14, GG-17 and RC-23. While these aircraft were taking-off, the RF-26 and RH-28 were stand-by as spares. It is not known if they went into the air or not and which six of these eight Saabs ended up in the skies over Zeltweg. However, somebody else saw BB-32 during take-off instead of the YB-02! All say that they are 100% sure about the logs (and the BB-32 was captured on picture), so perhaps the logs were made at different times and different flights (practise and real demo?).
