Fiat G.46 3B

The flight of a Fiat G.46 (G-BBII). Not seen or heard one before or since, so I presume quote rare. The one recorded was painted in camoflauge

Recorded at Little Gransden in 2008.

The Fiat G.46 was a military trainer developed in Italy shortly after World War II powered by a single Alfa Romeo 115ter engine (215BHP). Earlier marks were powered by de Havilland Gypsy Queen engines. The nose certainly looks like it was built for a de Havilland.

    Thanks Reg.
    Good online magazine. I’ve been thinking about an (A)RTF plane for some time – looks like your area has more detail and model making but where would you recommend starting?
