Hello All,
This year is the 80th anniversary of the first mass transatlantic flight flown by Italo Balbo and his crew of 24 SM 55X seaplanes.
I have attached a short film, produced by the Italian Air Force, to commemorate this historic event.
Even though it is in Italian, I'm sure that all of you will enjoy it!

Great video Vince, thank you. The S.55X was a great plane.

Hi Vince,
Glad you like it.
I wonder if there is going to be some kind of celebration in Chicago this summer to mark the 80th Anniversary?
If so, I would love to be there for the festivities!
