Piaggio P-166ML-1 - Italy - Air Force
This photo is copyright protected and may not be used in any way without proper permission.
A derivation of the Piaggo P-136 amphibian, the P-166 retained the look of a seaplane and the funky twin pusher prop arrangement. Capable of carrying two crew and four passengers, the design was particularly suited to landing and taking off from small grass strips (even those not intended as airfields!) and was capable of carrying replacement engines for the Italian's Fiat G91 jet-fighters. The final roles in service were parachutist training and aerial photography.
