Savoia Marchetti SM.79
Additional shots. Probably filmed with one of the surviving aircraft, most seem genuine.
Bombrack activator : like the real one but the right side.
The three throttles ...
... because three engines
Left panel is slighty different of the flight manual, as full view is missing the compass over the central panel.
About vehicules, movies of 1970s are most of the time of poor historical accuracy. Survivors of the World War Two were rare and most of the time in poor condition. So filming were done with the oldest battle tank or aircraft to simulate old soldier, sometimes with rogue material (US Sherman acting as German battle tank or an American trainer aircraft acting a Luftwaffe fighter. Sometimes, some aircraft were loosely modified with poor result as seen in Uccidete Rommel. La colomba non deve volare is not a great movie but a good use of archive footage and access to surviving aircraft (for the interior scenes) added to a convincing 1:1 model are a great improvement regarding other movies of this decade. Especially due to the limited budget regarding major film production. LVCDC (talk) 05:57, 15 March 2018 (MDT)
