    Jan,

    Check out the link I posted above. There are a lot of books there that you can download for free. I believe I got my copy of the Ba 65 book from there.

    Hi Jan,
    regarding Breda aircraft production I can suggest you to visit the ISEC-Breda foundation site:
    Fondazione ISEC - La Breda produce
    It's quite interesting but unfortunately there is only italian language version at the moment :rolleyes:
    Anyway, in the page I linked above you can get an idea about Breda's aircraft production: select one of the first three "Aeronautica....." items in the upper left menu (beside the Breda emblem), then click on the red bar on top of the sliding window below in order to see all the pictures...

    And you can also take a look at this video:
    Fondazione ISEC > Scintille di progresso - Breda: Zappata 308
    It's a rare footage about the beautiful civilian four engined prototype Breda-Zappata Z.308, the "Italian Constellation" :)

    I have a Ba64 workshop manual and a 250 pages book regarding the Ba65. My father was flying these machines. Let me know, if you did not find it yet, what you need and I'll do my best.
