additional information

The Fiat G.91 is a jet fighter aircraft designed and built by the Italian aircraft manufacturer Fiat Aviazione, which later merged into Aeritalia.  The G.91 fighter was designed for rough field operation, low maintenance, low cost, and NATO acceptance. During 1961, the G.91 entered into operational service with the Italian Air Force and then with the West German Luftwaffe the following year.  The G.91 remained in production for 19 years, during which a total of 756 aircraft were completed.

The aircraft received weapons suitability testing at Kirtland Air Force Base when assigned to the 4925th Test Group (Atomic) in 1961.
