Two airsow in two days. I haven’t done anything similar since 2015.
Lovere, a town on the northern tip of Lake Iseo, between the provinces of Bergamo and Brescia in Italy, hosts every year the Mario Stoppani Memorial Airshow. Mario Stoppani was a fighter Ace with 6 victories obtained in WW1 and seaplane test pilot and recordman who was born in this town in 1895.
Several seaplanes were moored in front of the town since morning.
Being part of the official photographers team, I could hitch a ride on a zodiac to take some “lake-side” photos.

During the morning it was possible to fly as a passenger on a seaplane.
