Jonathan Collection fly-in, Nervesa della Battaglia, Italy

The Jonathan Collection Foundation is owned and run by Giancarlo Zanardo, who has built several fine replicas including the huge biplane bomber, the Caproni CA3.

A large range of aircraft attended the fly-in, which was on June 21st. Unfortunately Zarnardo's replicas stayed tucked away in the splendid Bessonneau hangar which he restored after buying it from Wethersfield, Essex, England on eBay.
