In 1930, the seaplane MC 72, piloted by Commander Agello of the High Speed Department of Desenzano del Garda, won the world speed record, bringing back to Italy the trophy that had belonged to the British.
The speed reached was 709.209 km per hour, thanks to two FIAT engines of 1500 hp each, one behind the other with contra-rotating helixes. This world record remains unbeaten to this day. Today you can see the seaplane at the Vigna di Valle Air Force Museum.
