Macchi M.33: Porco needed less support…

Rare photograph of the 1925 Schneider Trophy taken at Bay Shore Park, Baltimore. The elegant rear end of the M.33 in the foreground. The hangar was shared with the British Gloster IIIA competitor seen in the background. Piloted by Lt Giovanni de Briganti, the M.33 achieved a disappointing 3rd position in that race.

Powered only by an old American Curtiss D-12, but what a stunning engine nacelle.

Porco’s.
