Savoia-Marchetti S.74: Fascit Jumbo.

Savoia-Marchetti S.74: Fascit Jumbo.

Built in the middle 30’s for Ala Littoria,the S.74 was a four engined airliner made in the classic interwar mixed costruction aircraft (wooden wings/ steel tube fuselage with covered by a fabric/wood skin).Only 3 of this pretty four engined airliner were made.They rendered service in the Roma-Paris-Marseille service and later in a service with Libya.With the outbreak of WW2 they’re impressed in military service as transports.They didn’t see the arrival of peace.

Ala Littoria had really good taste choosing their posters and left no doubt of who was their master.

Artist: Tito Corbella.
