??? - C.R.D.A. Cant Z.1015
The C.R.D.A. Cant Z.1015, serial MM512, at Gorizia during its trials as a torpedo-bomber. In the background is a line-up of Savoia-Marchetti S.M. 79s of the local torpedo-bomber school
Two of Zappata's earlier designs. In the foreground is a Z.506 trimotor seaplane, with Red Cross markings, which has alighted to rescue the crew of the Z.1007 bomber behind. The Z. 1007, it is believed, had bombed a ship in the Nile Delta but had to "ditch" on the way back. Note twin fins; single- and twin-fin Z.1007s were produced in parallel
