Thanks, Varjag!

One more naval question - what Italian ship is being scrapped?

Best regards, Aleks

Greetings, Varjag!

Sorry, not her. The ship under question has undergone more significant post-war modernization than Grecale.

Best regards, Aleks

Thanks - always a pleasure to hit something missed by more renown authority... :wink:

Next - UFO - you should not have a problem with the plane wearing such pretentious registration... :D

Well, I give up! :(

Plane is Caproni (Bergamaschi) P.L.3 (Registration “I-TALY”), a non-starter one in this quiz as well as in real life (it failed to enter MacRoberson Race in 1934, with pilots Lombardi and Suster, starting number 61 - http://www.airrace.com/ResultsMacrobertson.htm )

Anyboby could take the opportunity to post a new question... :idea:

A new question.
Well, tell me now the name of this man: he went from an aristocratic family; he spoke fluently four languages; he had a Degree in Law; during WWII, he was the first Italian fighter pilot to place a gun camera on his aircraft to film a shooting down of an enemy plane, so he become C.O. of the Regia Aeronautica's Aerial Cinematographic Section (Sezione Volo Cinematografica); he partecipated as translator to the negotiations between Badoglio and Eisenhower on board of the HMS Nelson; after the Italian-Anglo-American armistice, he served in the Aeronautica Co-Belligerante and, after the Nazi invasion, he made an anti-Nazi leaflet-launching raid over of Rome occupied by the Germans.
Who was he?

Other helpful indications: he shoot down 10 enemy aircrafts (so he was an ace of the Regia Aeronautica) and in WWII he was decorated with 3 Silver Medals to the Military Valour and with a German EKII.
