Italian Schneider Cup entrant, 1931

Technical problems prevented the Macchi MC 72 from entering the 1931 Schneider race, but it later established a still unbeaten world air speed record of 440 mph for piston-engined seaplanes.

I wonder how fast the MC-72 would have gone of the drag-inducing pontoons were removed.
