Bell P-39 Airacobra/XFL-1 Airabonita - Italy
Serial: 84/X Unit: 4 Stormo CT (Caccia Terrestre) Italian Air Force, 1945. At the vertical tail flat it is possible to see unit insignia.
This picture contains a very common error with Italian Co-Belligerent Aircraft. The script on the side of the aircraft is not for Baracca as this unit under on its previous Macchi 202's and 205's prior to the surrender of Italy. After the surrender the Stormo was named in honor of another fallen pilot Lucchini. The flowing script from a distance makes the casual observer to make the wrong judgement to the name.
