Bell P-39Q Airacobra, 4^ Stormo Caccia, ICAF

 

Skin resolution: 1024x1024

 

Unmarked included

 

 

Generic skins for P-39Q in service with Regia Aeronautica/Italian Co-Belligerant Air Force

between June 1944 and May 1945.

 

-----------Notes--------------------------------------

 

In June 1944 the Regia Aeronautica/ICAF received 149/170 P-39s from the storages of 15th Air Force.

The majority of them where P-39Q (mainly from blocks -15 and -20), with few P-39N (used for training),

and a single P-39M (the s/n 42-4741, P-39M-1-BE).

 

During three months of training, 11 accidents occurred and three pilots died.

One of them was Sergente Maggiore Teresio Martinoli, top-scoring ace of R.A. with 22 victories (he died on 25 August 1944).

 

The 4th Stormo Caccia was entirely re-equipped with the Airacobras and, from September '44 until April '45, was involved

in a very intensive tour of duty over North-Western Greece, Albania and Yugoslavia.

 

Under the colors of the newborn Aeronautica Militare, the Airacobra flew for the last time during 1951.
