DE HAVILLAND VAMPIRE IN ITALIAN SERVICE
Thanks to these aircrafts Italy entered into the jet era. The De Havilland DH.100 Vampire was in fact the second jet engine fighter to be used in service in Great Britain and at the same time the first single-engine jet plane of the type mass-produced in the UK. It was so internationally successfully that Italy also built it under license and its use marked the Italian post-war rebirth from 1948 to 1950 of both the national industry and the A.M.I., for whom the aircraft was the first jet engine fighter. The volume
is rich with black and white and color photographs, profiles and drawings.
