Notes:

Preserved at Italian Air Force museum of Vigna di Valle. This famous fighter of mixed wood and metal construction, a single-seat biplane with a wider upper wing and a discrete positive dihedral, designed by Eng. Dupont, was chosen by an Italian commission in 1916 to equip the hunting line thanks to its qualities of great handling and sturdiness. Small and compact, with sober and elegant lines, an excellent climber, it was the favorite aircraft of many aces of the First World War including Silvio Scaroni, thirty aerial victories, Mario Fucini and Giorgio Michetti. The specimen exhibited at the Museum is the aircraft that belonged to Flavio Torello Baracchini, ace with 21 aerial victories, and was donated to the Air Force by the Municipality of Florence.
