In Rome many years after the 1928 polar expedition of the semi-rigid airship "Italia". Nobile has endured years of scorn for his actions during the disaster and its aftermath. He imagines his apartment turned into a court of inquiry against him, where witnesses and judges are his former crewmen and Roald Amundsen.

Nobile Model T-34 Roma
Italian-built semi-rigid airship purchased by the United States in 1921 but designated by its constructor as the Model T-34. Operated by the United States Army Air Service from November 1921 to February 21, 1922, when it crashed in Norfolk, Virginia, after hitting high tension lines killing 34 people aboard, with 9 survivors. As a result of this accident, Roma was the last hydrogen inflated airship flown by the US military; all subsequent airships were inflated with helium.
Nobile N-4 Italia
First, archive footage.
Then, a model for the full sight...
and a size 1:1 replica of the corridor
.. as like as for the gondola (here, once the crash has store it from the airship).
Set featuring the wreckage (the airship envelope has never been found).
Yakovlev Yak-12 (acting as a Fokker C-V)
A yak 12 was highly modified by addition of a lower wing and removing windscreen of the cabin to open the cockpit and transforming it in a tandem aircraft to simulate a Fokker C-V.
With anothers colors.
Another one was slightly modified (just addition of a bar betwwen the wheels and change of the cooling).
Wearing the swedish roundels.
Another plane higly modified and which never flew after that.
Various Mock-up of Aircrafts
To symbolise the multi national rush from the journalists and aviators who came in Bergen during the rescue effort. Several aircraft converted without great precision to figure airplanes of the late twenties.
Yakovlev Yak-12 (modified into an unidentified flying boat)
Another Yak 12 without its engine and the windshield remove in order to create an open cockpit. An upper wing has been added and the engine place between the two wings. On the real flying boat, the engine was a pusher, not a puller. Roald Amundsen disappeared with the three other crew members on this aircraft during a Search and Rescue flight which left Bergen (Norway) on the 18th June 1928.
Macchi M.5 & SPAD S.XIII

Nobile N1 Norge
At Admunsen's appartment (in 1928), a frame with an Airship picture. Probably a memory of the 1926 North Pole expedition aboard the first Class N airship of Nobile, beaten of a few days by the american Col. R. E. Byrd and F. Bennet (who used a Fokker F-VIIa/3M).
Same aircraft seen in other movies - IMPDb: Frequently Seen Aircraft (Others / Lighter-Than-Air).
Unidentified Aircraft (Acting as Latham 47)
Latham 47.02 piloted by Norwegian Leif Dietrichson and Frenchman René Guilbaud, picked up the explorer Roald Amundsen and three other crew at Bergen. On 18 June the aircraft left Tromsø, Norway to fly across the Barents Sea; it disappeared without a trace.
The Latham 47 was a flying boat so a mooring is mandatory, not a runway...
As the mock up built from a Yak 12 is unable to fly, it's an Antonov An 2 which landed near the survivors.
