Claypaky Xtylos units enhance airshow by the Italian air force stunt team on Lake Garda

(PRG)

The 85th anniversary of the world seaplane speed record set in 1934 at Desenzano seaplane base by Marshal Agello was commemorated on Saturday 5 and Sunday 6 October in Desenzano del Garda, in the province of Brescia. His record stands at 709.202 km/h and has never been broken to this day.

A series of air show stunts was performed for this great celebration, which attracted hundreds of thousands of spectators, culminating in a display put on by the Frecce Tricolori, the Italian air force stunt team.

Claypaky also took part in the event with a light installation set up on the terrace of the Hotel Estée in Desenzano, which could be seen on Friday, Saturday and Sunday evenings.

The installation consisted of ten Xtylos units: nine projected a very long Italian tricolour flag onto Lake Garda like the trails of coloured smoke from the MB-339 aircraft of the Italian air force stunt team, and the other solo light projected a beam for one minute every half hour of the same colour orange as the MC 72 seaplane used by Marshal Agello to set his record.
