Unusual World War I three-engine bomber, with two of the 150hp Fiat engines pulling and one engine pushing. Flown by Lt. Casimiro Buttini during the War, when he got the Gold Medal of Valor. After the War he purchased the aircraft for 30,000 lire and kept it in safe store. In 1959 the Italian Air Force bought it back and now displayed at their excellent museum. Marked as '4166'.
