The ROC Airshow is one of only six American show sites for Frecce Tricolori, which is performing in the
United States for the first time since 1992. Frecce Tricolori was founded on March 1, 1961 and currently
operates the Aermacchi MB-339-A/PAN, a two-seat fighter-trainer aircraft. Made up of 10 aircraft – nine
in formation and one soloist – Frecce Tricolori are the world’s largest acrobatic team. One of the
highlights of their performance is their signature red, white, and green smoke.

The CAF RISE ABOVE Squadron, a three-fold educational outreach program that brings the history and
