Photographer's Remark

In 2005, the Italian Air Force started the Aggiornamento Capacità Operative e Logistiche (ACOL), Operational and Logistical Capability Upgrade programme for 55 of its AMX aircraft. The ACOL included a new laser INS, new cockpit displays and allowing the aircraft to drop Joint Direct Attack Munition guided bombs. This AMX is apparently flown by an US Air Force exchange pilot, the US flag and the flag on the flight suit, reveals this detail. The 132 Gruppo is based at Istrana, Vittorio Bragadin air base (Italy) but was deployed with three aircraft to Konya in support of exercise Anatolian Eagle 2019.
