I apologize if this news it is not about an airline of something else. I believe its right to give a tribute to Stelio Frati, which was passed away in Milan yesterday night.
Stelio Frati can be defined the best designer of aircraft that ever Italy had until now. The beautiful planes born by this important masterpiece continue to be immortal despite he got airborne for the last time. They'll continue to fly and they'll remind the genius that has created them.
F8L Falco's, SF260s, General Avia 22 Pegaso and other brilliant planes was born from his great pencil. The artist have left this world.
Rest in peace Stelio.
