Hi all,

in dimensione cielo 11 I have found little info about Lombardi L.B.1 and L.B.2, but I can´t understand the italian language. Anybody know: real aircraft or projects? Please, post drawings and technical data ;D :p

Hi all,

I myself am looking for information on the L.B.2. I found a photo of it at the 1937 Milan aviation exhibition and the article (from Flight magazine) only mentioned it in passing, saying it was a two-seater powered by a 110hp Alfa engine. What did JAWA have to say on it?

Hi,

Lombardi also design and built the L.4,a light twin version of
the L.3 and powered by a pair of C.N.A. D.IV engines.

The bit on page 7 in Dimensione Cielo 11 on the L.B.2 reads (literally):

"The aircraft assumes the acronym of L.3 being the third realization of Lombardi after prototypes L.B.1 and L.B.2"

And that is about the extent of the coverage of the L.B.1 and L.B.2 in the book.

Lombarda (Aeronautica Lombarda S.A.) was not associated with Lombardi. Francis Lombardi's designs were under A.V.I.A.

Lombarda bought out Aeronautica Vittorio Bonomi in 1937.

Another couple of views of the LB.2. As it is powered by an Alfa 115 it is probably appropriate that Francis Lombardi is latterly known as the producer of Alfa Romeo 1900 coupes.

It does. A.V.I.A., itself, considered the Mortara-designed 1949 LM.7 to be a direct LM.5 derivative. Wikipedia lists the LM.7 as a "three-seat version with Praga or Walter Minor engine". Actually, of the two LM.7s built, one (I-PACK) was powered by a 60 hp CNA D.4 (as per LM.5), the other (I-TTEN) by a 105 hp Walter Minor 4-III. However, the LM.7 was offered with an optional 75 hp Praga.

The LM.7 was offered as a "tri-quadriposto per turismo e sport although its hard to imagine squeezing that optional fourth person into the back!

LM.7 data and photo of I-PACK: https://web.archive.org/web/20110707112240/http://www.aliromantiche.com/archivio_storico_LM7.html

Yes my dear Apophenia,

but we know it as Avia-Lombardi after Avia was absorbed by Francis Lombardi in 1947.

Indeed, but on the 16 April 1948 LM 7 static airframe test report (relazione consuntiva prove statiche velivolo "LM/7") the firm is still identified as "A.V.I.A. an. vercellese Ind. Aeronautiche Ufficio Tecnico".

Maybe they didn't see an urgent need to change the work documents?

But in General Aviation second edition by Airlife,the company formed in 1947 ?.

Sure, but corporate entities are formed and dissolve all the time. Often, they'll continue trading under a familiar banner. As starviking said, maybe they just weren't in a rush to change their identity on publications.
