English translation by Dario Cocco
From June 17th to July 1st the important multi-national exercise called Elite 2010 had taken place. As usual on Lechfeld airbase for the tactical groups and on Landsberg airbase for transport and helicopter groups some of the most important NATO air forces have met in order to refine the tactics of suppression of enemy defenses.
For the duration of exercise packages composed of the various air forces present made several sorties.
It should be noted that this year the presence of aero-tactical components has been greatly reduced, because many nations were not present as in previous years- The assets thus were limited to aircraft from Turkish, British, Spanish, Polish, plus a very small component from Norway.
As usual for the day June 24th a Spotter Day was organized, where we had the perfect opportunity to photographically document the activity.
