Now all roads lead to France and heavy is the tread
Of the living; but the dead returning lightly dance.

The Caproni CA Bomber

  1. Maj. LaGuardia (future Mayor of NY) commanded the American pilots in Italy. They were disgruntled. They wanted to fly sleek speedy sexy French Spads. Not this ungainly giant. The Maj. asked an Italian Sergeant Pilot to demonstrate the big plane. To really "wringer it out." He did. The Americans were impressed and quit asking for transfers.
