The plane on which poet Gabriele d'Annunzio made his famous flight above Vienna on 9th August 1918, dropping leaflets prompting the surrender of Austro-Hungarian Army during WW1. Countrary to popular belief, d'Annunzio never obtained a pilot license and only flew as observer and gunner. Preserved in Vittoriale degli Italiani, d'Annunzio's private mansion and museum.
