    1968-06-12BLIMF Salone Aeronautica in static display area of the 3rd Salone dell Aeronautica e dello Spazio at Turin/Caselle airport, Unfortunately the show was discontinued after the 1972 edition. As you can note, this Choctaw was wearing the badge of U.S. Army Southern European Task Force (SETAF), the winged San Marco Lion with open book over a three-color shield, and was then based at Verona/Boscomantico airport, in the Veneto region.

    In origin, this winged lion was the symbol of the Republic of Venice in peace time, when a war was under way the book was closed. The same symbol was used by the Italian 87th Squadriglia during World War I. The Ansaldo SVA biplanes of this unit, under the command of poet-warrior Gabriele d Annunzio, performed a leaflet bombing over Wien in the closing period of the Great War. A true forerunner of the psychological air warfare.
