Venetian Motors

Oh sure.....

The twenty litres are used on the Vaporettos that operate the Grande Canal in Venice. All diesels as I recall.

1935-1939 Savoia Marchetti S79
A shot of the plane after the substitution of the Piaggio engines with the more powerful Alfa Romeo 125 RC 35 engines. The various records are written on the rudder; the most important is the one obtained on the 5th of August 1935 during the flight Massaua-Cairo-Rome under the command of Mag. Biseo with Gen. Valle on board. It is interesting to notice here the military S/N 260 used for experimental machines. It is also good to notice the aerofoil struts on the tail. Other records reported on the rudder includes the speed records of 1000 and 2000 km, with various loads, obtained during the month of September

Nice job with the aircraft models! I was aware that there were planes built with Alfa motors TOTALING over 20 liters, but not that any one motor had a displacement of over 20 liters.

Thanks Patrick and Ronny...
