Hello guys,

today I found out this very interesting video on youtube.

There is a REALLY scary sequence on 1:49 when an S.79 just passes above the
British ship. Looks like the torpedo is still on the plane.

Maybe it's an old video, but I have never seen it before.
I always saw the picture taken out from that vid, but never the video itself.

Also, found out a good link HERE (http://www.geocities.com/CapeCanaveral/Runway/9601/corradini.html) :
