Pisa, 27 August 2021 – It is based on the 46th Air Brigade of Pisa the pilot who avoided, on take off from Kabul with a C130 on which there were dozens of Afghans fleeing, the bullets fired in all probability by groups of Taliban. And that they did not hit the aircraft thanks also to the cold blood of Annamaria Tribuna, from Palermo, with aerial missions all over the world, from Africa to the poles.
The Air Force described the delicate phases of that take-off explaining that, seeing tracer bullets that were fired upwards, the pilots performed a diversionary maneuver. None of the people on board, nor the vehicle, were affected. With over two thousand flight hours under his belt, the major Annamaria Tribuna is a “combat ready” pilot, ready for combat.
He also flew a C130 in Antarctica, in support of scientific missions. With her, pilots on the plane were also Francesco Vergani and Riccardo Russo. “Carried out different types of missions – said Annamaria Tribuna to La Stampa – from tactical to strategic transport to personnel and material aviation missions”. A very delicate task that of the pilots who take refugees out of Afghanistan trying to escape the Taliban regime.
