Air Force Museum - Milan / ITALY (Part I)

From Italy this time and a business trip enabled me visit the nice Volandia museum of Milan in Malpensa AP, this museum occupies the old workhouses of "Caproni" the aircraft manufacturer which was active between 1908 and 1950.
An amazing replica of Macchi C.205V Veltro in a unique camo (I'm not sure whether it's for units served in North Africa) with Italian Air Force roundle can be seen outdoor just after exiting terminal-1.

The aerobatic Pitts S-1TGM Special with signature of its pilot "Giorgio Marangoni" .

A 1984 model ultralight aircraft (160kg) Leone T7.

Looking at the "Pou du Ciel" made me feel little disappointed, thinking how a little effort and plans can build such a nice flying machine, I realy wonder what many nations of 3rd world are lack of to invent something like this..!?!?!

Another French ultralight aircraft is the Jodel D.9 Bebe which first flew in 1948.

This photo is called "Human wants to fly by any means !!"

The new advanced trainer Alenia Aermacchi MB346 which was developed from the Russian Yak-130, deliveries will start in 2012 to Italian & Singapore air forces.

A trainer SIAI Marchetti SF.260, it realy has an agile design and streamlined as a Ferrari !!

Another example of simple mechanics to build a flying machine is the Bell 47G-3B, this 1953 model is built by Bell.

The first aircraft designed and built by Gianni Caproni CA.1 in 1910, it was an experimental aircraft but unfortunately it was destroyed in its first flying attempt in 27th May at that year.

A 1931 model Caproni CA 113 trainer biplane.

A reconnaissance two-seats Caproni CA 18 of 1913.

Nice presentation of the Floatplane by Gabardini model of 1914.

A reproduction of the 1909 french pioneer aircraft Bleriot XI, this plane can fly at max. speed of 90km/h at a range of 150km.

A full-size fiberglass mock-up of 1943 model of Macchi C.202 Folgore served with 365 squadron of the 150 group near Rome with roundles of Regia Aeronautica Italiana (Italian Royal Air Force) .

De Havilland DH 100 Vampire FB.6 of 1943 reg. 6-8/F-AZHJ.

A 1947 two-seat Macchi MB.308 touring aircraft reg. I-FABR.

With its pearl white paint and comfortable beige leather seats I can call it the flying "Lexus" !!
