At the just-concluded 2023 Nanchang Air Show, six teams representing the highest level of aerobatic performance from home and abroad took turns to show off their skills.
In addition to two Chinese and three British aerobatic teams, the Pioneer Team from Italy had performed mid-air ballet for the crowds.
Since the Italian team was established in 2005, it has performed in more than 20 countries, including Japan, Spain and France, with a total of over 300 performances so far.
Corrado Rusalen is the leader of the Pioneer Team. This year, he participated in the show with his wife Silvia Rappo, who is also the youngest female pilot on the team.
Looking to the future, Rusalen and Rappo intend to keep putting on air displays around the world.
The 2023 China Aviation Industry Conference and Nanchang Air Show was held in east China's Jiangxi Province from Oct. 27 to 29.
