Cant Z.1007 Alcione

The Cant Z.1007 Alcione (Kingfisher), nicknamed "the flying barn door" by its air crews because of its flying characteristics, was a three-engined medium bomber used by the Italian Regia Aeronautica, Italian Co-Belligerent Air Force, Aeronautica Nazionale Repubblicana and Luftwaffe during World War II. The Cant Z.1007 was developed from the Cant Z.506 seaplane, an aircraft that had established many world records in the late 1930s. It was a land-based version and incorporated many improvements. The Z.1007 first saw action in the Italian invasion of Greece in October 1940. The Z.1007 participated in the bombing campaign over Malta and in the campaigns in North Africa and on the Eastern Front. Although fast, these bombers were vulnerable when hit and prone to catch fire. Source: Info: Wikipedia Profile: (Inactive)
