151a Squadriglia, 20o Gruppo C.T., 51o Stormo

Born in Como on 19 January 1915, Ennio Tarantola is supposed to have worked in his chlidhood as a banana seller for the Colombo-Poggi firm thus earning the nickname “Banana”. He joined the Regia Aeronautica in 1936 and served with the XVI Gruppo “la Cucaracha” flying the Fiat CR.32 during the Spanish Civil War. On 20 January 1938 he claimed a Curtiss fighter (Polikarpov I-15 Chato ). He flew Ju87 Stukas in the 209a and 239a Squadriglie Autonoma Bombardamento a Tuffo from March to October 1941. On 4 November 1941 he joined the 151a Squadriglia of the 20° Gruppo C.T. His second shot was on 5 December when he claimed a Curtiss P-40 over North Africa flying a Fiat G.50. Re-equipped with Macchi C.202s Tarantola took part in the attack on Malta. During 1942, Tarantola flew the Macchi C.202 serial 151-2, marked with an inscription on its nose “Dai Banana!” (Come on, Banana!). On 1 July 1942 he claimed a Spitfire over Malta after a combat with 603 Squadron. The unit moved to Capoterra, Sardegna (Sardinia) in May 1943. On 28 June 1943 over Sardegna he claimed a P-40 and on 30 July a P-38. On 2 August 1943 he took part in a hectic combat over Sardegna, against P-40s and P-38s claiming two of them shot down over Capo Pula. After the Italian surrender Tarantola joined the Italiana Aeronautica Nazionale Repubblicana. Tarantola lived in Cesenatico before passing away on 30 July 2001

ITALIAN AIR FORCE (WW2) . REGIA AERONAUTICA & ANR

Magg. Pilota Adriano Visconti - 1° Squadriglia, 1° Gruppo Caccia "Asso di Bastoni"

Adriano Visconti was born in Tripoli, Libia, 11 November 1905. Together with Franco Lucchini he was top among italian fighter pilots with 26 victories. 19 fighting in Regia Aeronautica (1940-1943) and 7 flying with Aeronautica Nazionale Repubblicana (1943-1945) Visconti joined the Regia Aeronautica in October 1936. He flew in the 50°Stormo, 159a Squadriglia in 1939 and from June 1940 he flew the Breda 65 in ground attack role. In 1941, Visconti was detached to the 54°Stormo, 7°Gruppo, 76a Squadriglia on Macchi C.200. From the end of 1941 until the September 8, 1943, the Italian Armistice, he flew the Macchi C.202 Folgore. After the armistice, Visconti continued to fly with the newly formed Aeronautica della Repubblica Sociale Italiana being promoted to captain, commanding 1°Gruppo Caccia. In May 1944, he was promoted to major. Until the disbanding of the unit in 1945, Visconti was wounded on several occasions, but never seriously. Although he never claimed more than ten kills he was later credited with 26; a careful check of Italian and German records confirmed that he had indeed shot down ten enemy planes. This profile, C.205 "18-1" probably never flown with Visconti. It's quite possible that he flew with the "23-1" serialled Macchi.

During the same period they lost three 3 pilots as killed in action. The 160a Squadriglia lost seven CR.32s in combat and eight in other accidents.

Reiner claimed a P-38. After the Armistice of 8 September Reiner joined the Allied Forces with his Macchi C.205 reaching Galatina on 12 September. He ended the war with a score of 10. Other sources credits him with 10 destroyed, 8 probables and 3 destroyed on the ground. Reiner passed away on 6 September 2002.

Hello Hfalex;

There is a skinner, Abraxa, who comes to mind as having skinned practically the entire Regia Aeronautica single handedly Smile Many of these schemes look familiar (as having been skinned), so you might find them at some of the popular sites.

Indeed some inspiring pics; thanks for posting them

Reggiane RE 2007



Detail design of the Re 2007 single-seat jet fighter began in 10/43 and component manufacture began shortly afterwards. All design work had to be based on the known dimension of the Jumo 004B, it's intended power plant, but could progress no further by 1/44 owing to the lack of detailed information relating to the engine and it's installation. Hauptmann Bohm, the Luftwaffe's senior engineer at the Reggiane plant, could not obtain a definitive decision concerning the supply of the two Jumo 004B's. On the 1/7/44, Roberto Longhi wrote to Count Caproni, requesting that he intercede with the German authorities as design work had stalled. In the meantime, much of the rear fuselage, wing spars, ribs, undercarriage and the cockpit were built but because of the inability to obtain adequately detailed information relating to the Jumo 004B the work once again stalled. In 10/44 the completed components were moved to the Caproni plant at Taliedo, where they would remain until the end of the war. They were then shipped to the U.S.A. It is interesting to note that the two Jumo 004B engines were sent to Italy, but never made it to the Regianne designers and allegedly were sold for scrap in Milan immediately after the collapse of the German forces in Italy.
