Researching the OFM Romeo Ro.1

Post by Edwin » Thu Nov 18, 2010 4:39 am

Hello,
This is my first post on this forum, so I'll start with a small intro. My name is Edwin and am from Zwolle in the Netherlands. For the past six years I have been researching the history of the Fokker C.5 aeroplane, both in the Netherlands and in foreign use. This has resulted in a first book about the use in the Netherlands, which will be in store in december.
Right now I have progressed with researching foreign use of the Fokker C.5 and of course, the Italian use and license building of this aircraft is of major interest to me. Unfortunately, information is rather scarce. I have found some info on the numbers which were built and about some of the operational use in the African colonies.
I'd like to ask if there are experts on interwar aircraft production in Italy and maybe, on Romeo aircraft in particular. Any help or tips is greatly appreciated!

Hoping this can help
