    Captured Cant Z 1007? Italians were fond of Tri-motors and dual rudders.

    Looks like it Chris but the photos I've seen show the rudders as more rounder. Could be a variant.

    Nice one Andy. I got as far as the .82 and quit looking.

    Way to go Sherlock! Looks like a demiliterized SM 84...or is it SM 82?

    I think it's a Cant Z 1007 bis, probably with co-belligerant Italian roundels used in late 1943 and following years.

    Addendum:
    The truck on the right side of the photo is Italian for sure and these are two pictures I found on the web:

    The hump on the bottom of the Cant in those pictures is not present on the first pic posted, hence the SM.

    Andy is right it's a SM.84. Few of those were used by Slovakian Air Arms as well.

    I agree, it's for sure an SM.84 belonging to 241 Squadriglia of 132nd Gruppo Trasporti (Transport Group) based Cassibile, Sicily.

    Kind of like the Italian Fairey Albacore. It was meant to replace the SM 79, but just couldn't quite do it.
