Fiat G.55 to be restored to airworthiness

A Fiat G.55 Centauro during World War II.

According to Aeroplane Monthly, the Fiat G.59B MM53778 is to be restored to its wartime configuration as a Fiat G.55 Centauro. The aircraft belongs to Jerry Yagen’s Military Aviation Museum. Although a German-built DB.605 engine is available, there are doubts that it can be rebuilt to airworthiness and the MAM is looking for an licence-built Fiat or Alfa Romeo engine to power the aircraft.
