16 OCTOBER 1916: Air attack on Punta Salvore and Rovinj

(To Marina Militare)

Four Italian and three French seaplanes take off to perform an offensive action towards Pula.

Unable to reach the target due to adverse weather conditions, they conduct the attack on a cruiser and two enemy torpedo boats sighted in Punta Salvore and Rovinj.

During the action an Italian seaplane is hit and forced to land.

Reached by a torpedo boat, it is towed to the Venice seaplane base.
