03 occurred March 1977: Monte Serra's aerial blaze


the first class officers, a vessel second lieutenant, three officers and two non-commissioned officers of the Air Force, sharing the same implacable destiny, express the absurd balance sheet of one of the most serious deaths that has ever struck the Naval Academy of the Navy.

That of 3 March had to be a normal settling flight. The students were enthusiastic about this experience that at the end of the fourth class could have led some of them to a specific choice: to attend piloting courses at the United States Navy.

Flights like these had been made for over twenty years, but a tragic fate had it that just that C130, the "Vega 10", crashed on Monte Serra, near Pisa.
