THE Cant.Z‐501 in which the pilots Stoppani and Corrado, with Studiano as wireless operator, established a new long distance record for flying boats with a flight of 4,122 kilometres (2,560 miles) from Monfalcone in Italy to Massaua in Eritrea, in a newly designed machine for naval reconnaissance and light bombing. By its flight, accomplished on October 18, 1934, it beat the world's record previously established by an American crew on January 11, 1934, who flew a twin‐engined 10‐P‐1 flying boat over a distance of 3,860823 kilometres (2,500 miles).
