Cant Z.506B Airone

The CANT Z.506 Airone (Heron) was a triple-engine floatplane produced from 1935. During World War II it was used as a reconnaissance aircraft, bomber and air-sea rescue plane, by the Italian Regia Aeronautica. The military version revealed itself to be one of the best floatplanes ever built. Despite its wooden structure, it was able to operate even in very rough seas. A number of Z.506S air-sea rescue aircraft remained in service until 1959. A Cant 506 became famous, among the Allies, because it was the only plane captured by prisoners of war on the Western Front (the plane was used by the RAF from Malta).
