Red Devils Belgium – 50th anniversary of the Marchetti

The SIAI-Marchetti SF.260 is an Italian light aircraft marketed as a military trainer and aerobatics aircraft. The SF.260 has been largely sold to military customers as a trainer and light combat aircraft.  The Belgian Air Component (Dutch: Luchtcomponent, French: Composante air) operates the SF.260 at Beauvechain Air Base.

36 Marchetti SF.260M were acquired in 1969 and deliverd from the same year till 1971.

To mark the 50th anniversary of the type in the Belgian Air Component, the demo team Red Devils Belgium painted one of their Marchetti’s tail for the season.
