World War II produced some of the most exotic and fearsome prop-driven planes ever to soar across enemy skies. The Italian Air Force is unique among World War II combatants in that they fought on both sides. Until 1943, the Aeronautica Nazionale Republicana took to the skies along with the German Luftwaffe, fighting against the British and Americans. After Mussolini was deposed and an Armistice was signed with the Allies, the former Aeronatica planes flew to Allied camps and a new fighting unit, the Italian Co-Beliggerent Air Force, was formed. The older Italian planes were soon largely replaced with British and American fighters and bombers, and Italian pilots flew more than 11000 missions in the last 18 months of the war. Music is “Inno Nazionale Italiano,” and Peter IlyichTchaikovsky’s “Capriccio Italien, Opus 45.”
