Fiat C.R.32: The ultimate price.

Brilliant, yet inaccurate, drawing depicting the death of Sergente pilota Marcello De Salvia  over Albania, 1941. He was shot down in combat with the British just after he took down himself an enemy fighter. De Salvia unit (354ª Squadriglia, 24º Gruppo) employed both the C.R.42 and the G.50 at that time but not, what appears to be here, the ancient C.R.32. In fact, he was killed while flying a G.50 monoplane.
