Vigna di Valle Italian Air Force Museum update

On Feb. 15 I visited once again the Italian Air Force Museum, located in Vigna di Valle, on the Bracciano Lake, some 25 chilometers from Rome.

I went there because I wanted to take the pictures I needed to update e complete the page dedicated to the Museum, with plenty of information, that you can find here: Italian Air Force Museum. My aim is not only to collect images of the exhibition and close ups of the displayed aircraft but also to track eventual new additions, movements, works etc. Currently, the Skema hangar that hosts the post-WWII aircraft (and most of jets) is still closed for enlargement and maintenance works. However, I managed to get a few picture of it from the nearby Padiglione “Badoni”. As you can see, the aircraft have been moved, a few are barely visible and many were probably transferred elsewhere.
