Breda A.13 + Ardea-Bergonzi

Jan den Das

Recommended Posts



A lot op people interrested in historical aviation know about the Breda A.14 bomber, only prototype.

Most people dont know about the Breda A.13.

Well this is the same aeroplane, but because that there are people who has problems with 13 is this changed in 14.

I found this information in l'Aeronautice from May 1925.



At the Taliedo airschow in 1919 was at the Breda stand a biplane canard the Ardea-Bergonzi, which also was named Bergonzi-Tonini.

The only this I found is that Bergonzi and Tonini designed and build before the Great War already two Canard monoplanes.

Who can help me with all kind of information/materials concerning the Ardea?
