Between 21 and 22 October, a delegation from the German Air Force, headed by Chief of the Air Force Lieutenant General Ingo Gerhatz, visited the Italian air force bases of Rome and Lecce.

On 21 October, in Palazzo Aeronautica, the Italian air force headquarters, the Chief of Staff of the Italian Air Force, General Alberto Rosso, met Lt. Gen. Ingo Gerhatz. During the meeting they discussed the link between the two air forces and the possibility to set up new partnership on common platforms such as Tornado or Eurofighter.
The second day, the german representative was received by General Aurelio Colagrande, Comandante delle Scuole and Terza Regione Aerea who explained to them the training program of the Italian Air Force and the new formed International Flight Training School.
