Caproni Ca.20

1st Flight 1914

The Caproni Ca.20 was an early monoplane fighter.

Only a single Caproni Ca.20 was ever built, because the Italian government rejected the design in favour of bomber aircraft.

The prototype was stored in a barn on Giovanni Battista Caproni’s property for 85 years.

During 1999 it was sold to the ‘Museum of Flight’ in Seattle.

The dry climate had preserved the aircraft, with the exception of the tyres, these had been ruined by vermin.

The prototype Caproni Ca.20 displayed at the Museum of Flight includes all its original parts.
