CASELLE, Italy — On the first of four days of the Alenia/Aermacchi press tour, I got an overview on the company and a briefing about the C-27J; toured production lines for the C-27J, Eurofighter and AMX; toasted champagne over a wonderful lunch; interviewed Alenia CEO Giovanni Bertoleone and flew in the C-27J jump-seat from Turin to Venegono, which is the focus of Day 2.
