Fiat G.59-4B flies in Germany

Article in the January edition of Fana de l’Aviation n° 578 about the Fiat G.59, a two seat trainer version of the G.55 fighter, with a V12 RR Merlin engine.
The G.59 registered D-FIAT made its first flight after restoration at Bremgarten on 22nd November 2017.
Meier Motors bought the aircraft in October 2015 from Guido Zuccoli’s widow.
Built in 1950 with serial n° 1789 it served in the Italian flight test squadron as MM.53278 and fuselage code RS-25.

If any of our Italian friends want copies of this edition, let me know
