Undoubtedly the FIAT G.91 was one of the most famous Italian post-war aircraft. Winner in 1958 of the NATO competition to equip the Alliance with a modern fighter-bomber, it was produced in Italy and Germany and was used by the military air forces of those nations as well as by the Portuguese one. In Italy, the G.91 was for many years the airplane used by the National Aerobatic Team, the famous Frecce Tricolori. The book tells the birth and evolution of the G.91, from prototypes to pre-series, to the 'R' reconnaissance versions to the 'T' training version.
