    And then..The UN-Lucky 13:

    [​IMG]
    On November, 1940 during the Battle of Britain, the Fiat CR.42 (95th Squadron, 18th Group C.T., 56th Wing C.T., Italian Air Corp, Magden, Belgium) flown by Sgt. Pietro Salvadori was forced to land on a beach near Orfordness lighthouse.

    Good choose Jan!!

    If you decide to make 13-95 flown by Sergente Pietro Salvadori, the MM is 55701..
    After an epic doghfight against Hurricanes of No.257 Squadron RAF, Salvadori lost his route and run out of fuel, force landing into English beach and reporting only minor damage, to the aircraft. This was eventually captured with the pilot, and flown to Martlesham Heat for evaluation by the RAF. The aircraft wears the usual three-tone with green and brown mottling on a sand base, and light grey undersurfaces. Worth of note is the shape and layout of the colour mottling above the top wing, usually different from the fuselage paint work, a typical feature of many CR.42s. Wing insigna is black on white roundels. Spinner and cowling ave been painted yellow, a tactical marking used by axis aircraft during the Battle of Britain. After the war this aircraft has been preserved, and can be visited now at Hendon, home of the RAF museum's Battle of Britain Hall but the colour isn't correct.
