The problem is that it is very difficult to retrieve radar
information in Italy. Airports do not want to divulgate
information. I have worked for the Italian Air Force and i knew
a person who works at the radar station... he said to me :"we
haven't seen anything, but in any case i cannot say anything to
you or other people not authorized".

I can say that my witness is a very reliable person and I
believe him.
