Italy salutes its champions

Italian aircrafts fly above the airplane carrying back home the Italian team at Pratica di Mare airport, 35km south of Rome, on Wednesday.

The Italians returned home a day after beating France in the final to win the 2006 World Cup in Germany.

The pilot of the team's plane hung an Italian flag out of the cockpit window as it landed at a military airport south of Rome.
