AERMACCHI MB-339 PAN

The Aermacchi MB-339 is a single-engine training and light attack aircraft which went into service with the Italian Air Force in 1979. A few were also exported to Peru and Argentina.

Until the 1980s the MB-339 was the only jet aircraft in the world capable of performing the Lomcovàk, a manoeuvre which only propeller aircraft were able to manage owing to the gyroscopic forces involved. The jet rose to world-wide prominence as the aircraft used by the Frecce Tricolori aerobatic display team which will be wowing the crowds at AIRPOWER16 with ten MB-339s.
