The Italian Air Force Panavia A-200A Tornado of the air arm's Reparto Sperimentale Volo flight test centre was awarded the prize for best livery, as also voted for by FRIAT members and presented by Tim Griffiths, from Jeppesen. In the words of the aircraft's weapons systems operator Col Paolo Fiorella, "We painted this aircraft for the 60th anniversary of our squadron. Winning this award here is a dream come true. A lot of magazines around the world are talking about us, and it's important so people know how the Reparto Sperimentale Volo works and what we do."
