Sgt. Salvadori

Post by steveiow » Sun Dec 09, 2007 2:49 pm

What happened to the Sgt. after he force landed?
Presumably he became a POW?
Is his plane still in a museum somewhere?
Thanks
Steve

Salavadori's plane is at Hendon and he was taken by the British and interrogated:

Not sure where he ended up but it would be interesting to know.

Take a look here:

There is a very detailed and frequently updated report on Corpo Aereo Italiano (CAI) activity on the Channel.

as far that i know he was captured from the british near a costal village called orfordness and became pow.
his fiat cr 42 mm5701 run out of fuel after a prolonged combat with the raf
near harwich while escorting 20 italian bombers br20 the brithish lost 4or 5 hurricane/spitfires and 3 italian br 20 were shot down
contrary to some reports that claim salvadori s falco engine was overeating it is believed that he run out of fuel try to protect the bombers under attack from the r.a.f.
with him another 18 aircraft crash or emergency landed the same day for the same reason

I may certainly be wrong, but I seem to recall that he joined the new Aeronautica Militare after the war and died in a flight accident while flying a jet.
