Photos directly below were taken of a Swedish Saab J29 Tunnan, I took these photos many years ago at the Italian AF museum at Vigna di Valle (near Rome).  This place was well known during the '30 because it was the site of the High Speed Test Center, there were tested the hydroplanes of the Schneider Cup (the base is placed on the Bracciano lake, north of Rome), and there was beat the speed world record for hyiroplane with the Macchi MC72, the restored hangars are now the site of the museum.

If you feel there is a need for descriptions for this walk around, then feel free to type them up and quote the photo numbers above and forward the descriptions to Steve Bamford, so they can be put up into this walkaround.  We could really use our viewers help with this.  An expert on this aircraft could write much better descriptions than we could.
