Since this thing never did more than a hop, claiming a range of "410 miles" is at best disingenuous. Just look at the huge amount of built-in headwind, plus the huge amount of induced drag from all those wings.

Wikipedia states that the range was 410 mi. To cross north atlantic with such a short range would require really short hops. Something like Newfoundland, Baffin Island, Greenland, Iceland, faroe islands. scotland and onto Europe. Rather than a real commercial venture, it seems like it may have been an elaborate investment fraud.

That design can only be described as a Total Gangf**k.

Er, yes... I think we must salute test pilot Semprini - to take the controls of such sa monstyer requires great valour...and after all Caproni's work on eminently sensible and original designs, too..
