Re: Italian Air Force Museum "Vigna di Valle".

Italo Balbo: he was an Italian political, military and aviator during the Fascist Period. He was governor of Libya. He partecipated to the "aviation cruise of the Western Mediterranean" (1928) and to the "aviation cruise of the Eastern Mediterranean" (1929); he led two transatlantic flights in formation: the "cruise transatlantic flight Italy-Brazil" in 1930 with 12 Savoia-Marchetti S.55A seaplanes, and the "air cruise of the Decades", with 25 Savoia-Marchetti S.55X seaplanes, to celebrate the tenth anniversary of the Italian Royal Air Force, during the Century of Progress, the World Fair that was held in Chicago in 1933-34
In June 28th 1940, Italo Balbo was shot down over Tobruk by British anti-aircraft. This is what Sir Arthur Laymore (Air Officer-Commander-in-Chief British Royal Air Force) written about him:
" British forces express their sincere mourning for the death of Air Marshal Italo Balbo, a great leader and a brave airman whom i knew personally, and the fate placed upfield."





His uniform:









A sword donated by Giuseppe Garibaldi to Italo Balbo:



A letter of Gabriele D'Annunzio to Italo Balbo:



A photo and a letter of Louis Bleriot to Italo Balbo:

Re: Italian Air Force Museum "Vigna di Valle".

Schneider Trophy: French industrialist Jaques Schneider instituted in 1912 the "Schneider Trophy" in order to promote the production of seaplanes, offering a price of 1000 Pounds to each winner of the first thrre races. The victory of three races in five would keep the Trophy for all time. The speed race consisted of flying seven times a triangular racetrack of 50 km having two turns of nearly 180°. The winner had the prerogative of organizing the next event at a location of his choice.





The winners:



Italian seaplanes for the Schneider Trophy:

Macchi MC.72 (1931)






Macchi M.67 (1929)





Macchi M.39 (1926)

Re: Italian Air Force Museum "Vigna di Valle".

Surely the Italian space program would have been aiming to go to the core of the earth?

Re: Italian Air Force Museum "Vigna di Valle".

Campini-Caproni 2: experimental jet monoplane (1940). First studies for a turbojet engine back to the years '20 by English Frank Whittle; however, until the late '30s were not made jet aircraft. In June 1939 there was the first flight of the rocket plane Heinkel He.176; later, in August of that year, there was a second flight of the Heinkel He.178, driven by a jet engine with a centrifugal compressor. In August 1949 there was the flight of Campini.

Re: Italian Air Force Museum "Vigna di Valle".

Love this aircraft and it´s sleek design. With it´s Retro-futuristic look it could be straight out of a 1930´s Buck Rogers Serial !
