Fiat G.80-1B                                              (c/n  1)


                                    Here's the prototype Fiat G.80 before the application of its military serial.   It was first flown on
                                    10 December 1951.   Unfortunately this aircraft crashed at Amendola on 9 May 1952 whilst
                                    engaged in trials for the Scuola Aviogetti (Jet Flying School).  Two other prototypes (G.80-2B
                                    and G.80-3B) and five production G.82s (also operated by the Scuola Aviogetti at Amendola)
                                    were produced.  The design competed in the 1955 NATO trainer competition held in France,
                                    but was not successful.
