Hi fellas, I have been looking through my reference material for quite some time now, but couldn't find any relevant material on Italian gauges.
I have some close up pictures of Italian instruments, but not of all of them unfortunately Sad I'm looking in particular for secondary instruments of Reggiane fighters, like pressure indicators etc..
Do you guys have anything like this?

Cheers

Alex

From the Re.2000 manual. Not a good shot but I'm sure if you get the manual it should have a clearer photo or some other close-ups. Try asking Riccardo I think he might have the manual.

In the Eighties, the late Sergio Govi published five books which are the ultimate work on Reggiane fighters, with an incredible amount of pictures, drawings, schemes, Units stories and notes on every single aircraft. They are long time out of print, and very hard to find. However, Giorgio Apostolo still publish them in CD-ROM. Text is in Italian, but if you're interested to Reggiane fighters I strongly recommend you them. Take a look here: www.apostoloeditore.com Very Happy

Grazie Stefano, I'll look into that. I also tried contacting the Swedish Air Force museum, they have a lovely exemplar there!

How nice, a manual without a detailed description of the instruments Surprised As you can see, I've been very busy, hardly time to do much else as business begins to pickup again (gloablly). How are you, are you still in he UK ?

well it's a generic operational manual, you have the various systems description, but hardly any picture of the actual instruments. Nothing like the Germans, who had manuals even for nuts and bolts Wink


Yup, still in the UK and loving it! I manage to go back to Italy every couple of months or so, but life here is way simpler and overall better (esp. if u r an aviation geek!).
I heard of the sinking oil rig and chinese tanker, does it have anything to do with you? Wink

Its funny to hear that because we have a wave of Brits flooding into AB/CAN. With all the bank failures there, outrageous deficits and high unemployment, not to mention inflation, it wouldn't be on my top list of places to be. I know you're going to say its worse in Italy, but Italy’s deficit is half of the UKs, there were no bank failures or mortgage crisis in Italy despite a real-estate boom in Italy, its unemployment rate at 8% is nowhere near other euro zone countries. Maybe you weren’t trying hard enough in Italy or do you have an English girlfriend that's presuaded you to live there Smile? Not long ago when I was in the UK, I was a little tired of eating out at expensive restaurants and decided to hit a good o'l McD's. I ordered a BigM and it cost me about $20.00 USD. That would have been ok when I found-out after the exchange-rate our people in the UK were actually paid less than in CAN/US. Anyway, best of luck in the UK.

Hi Alex
I should like to know in which part of Italy did you live.
I live in Tuscany, near Florence and in this zone there are a lot of foregneirs who live here with satisfaction. I agree with you about national politics, infact Tuscany government doesn't like to out first minister but all his temptative to conquer our region with his party have failed, up to now.
Ciao
Riccardo

Ciao Riccardo,

sono nato e ho vissuto a Roma, e nonostante vivessi una realta' particolarmente agiata, lavorando nell'azienda di famiglia, ero arrivato ad un punto di rottura.
Se decidessi di tornare in Italia un giorno credo che sarebbe proprio in Toscana che cercherei una casa. La vita qui e' molto piu' semplice ma non troppo dissimile da quella italiana, l'unica grande differenza e' che qui la gente e' MOLTO piu' educata ed onesta (mi e' successo di trovarmi in situazioni in cui ho applicato il metro valutativo "italiano", per poi essere imbarazzato nel constatare come la nostra purtroppo sia una natura spesso disonesta e meschina..)
Bada bene, qui non e' il paradiso, ci sono molti problemi, ma in confronto all' Italia la criminalita' e' una barzelletta (qui i poliziotti vanno in giro disarmati!), la societa' e' piu' onesta e soprattutto hanno uno spirito di nazione e forza di volonta' che noi non avremo mai..

Apologies to the forum friends who don't speak Italian, but this is a very Italian rant between two Italians, nothing relevant under an aviation point of view Wink

Hello Alex,
After reading your comments (I also read and speak italian)
....l'unica grande differenza e' che qui la gente e' MOLTO piu' educata ed onesta...., I find that you are generalizing.
I do not wish to turn this into a political debate or offend anyone on this forum.
If you find a difference, you are probably basing it on the fact that you are from Rome and lived there.
Rome is NOT Italy. So, if you wish to express your views and observations, then base them on Rome and Romans.
I travel to Europe at least 5 times a year, Britain included.
My favourite part of Italy is Veneto and I also like Toscana.
I have found that in general, people from Veneto are very polite, honest and well educated. (my opinion only)
As far as Britain is concerned, again in my opinion only, I find that people in Manchester are not so polite and honest or well educated as I find when I travel to London. I will not generalize and say that all people from Britain are like that, because they're not.
Jesse Ventura, Minnesota's Governor, once said years ago:"Assumption is the mother of all screw ups"
I therefore never assume and will always base my opinions on a personal note, rather then a generalization.
Vincent.

Caro Alex,
I am also Italian from Venice and I live in the U.K. Italy and England are both beautiful and welcoming in their different way, there are nice and bad people in both of them just accept that and do not slag Italy.
FORZA ITALIA!!!

P.S. looking in my CD library for photo of the instrument panel of the Re 2000

I'm sorry Vince, but I beg to differ.
Yes, I was born and lived in Rome for many years, but I travelled, lived and related to all parts of Italy and many parts of Europe, and although varied and with exceptions, our attitude is the same all around, and that is a fact (just look at who we are tolerating as prime minister..) .
As for the UK, you mentioned the two roughest cities of England, no wonder things are not that good there, but get out of the city and you will find a politeness, a sense of community, a law abiding attitude and a respect for institutions that is seldom seen everywhere else in the world.
Italy is a gorgeous country, but Italians have no respect for it, while here there's a completely different attitude, and everywhere you go is a little special place because people here do care about where/how they live.
