Umberto Nobile, an Italian aeronautical engineer and airship designer, leads a quiet life with his beloved dog Titina. One day, the famous Norwegian explorer Roald Amundsen contacts him and orders an airship to conquer the North Pole. Nobile seized the opportunity to make history. He takes Titina with him, and the unlikely trio sets off on an expedition to the last place on Earth to be discovered.
Note: This is an animated film. The aircraft shown in it are therefore not actual aircraft, however, where a reasonable depiction of an actual aircraft has been created, it has been identified as best as possible.
Aérospatiale-BAC Concorde of Air France.
Nobile first airship design was of this type.
Gas balloon & Unidentified Biplane Floatplane
At Amundsen's home, model of gas balloon (Bratvaag of the Swedish explorer Salomon August Andrée who deadly failed to reach by this mean the North Pole in 1897) and an Unidentified Biplane Floatplane powered by a push pull layout.
Nobile N1 Norge
Seen on the drawing table, blue print and flying.
Severall archive footage are used showing both outside and inside (cabin and corridor) during flight or at station.
Same aircraft in other movies at IMPDb: Frequently Seen Aircraft (Others / Lighter-Than-Air). (missing screenshot)
Unidentified Biplane Floatplane
Missing screenshot of generic aircraft once Nobile is back in Italy (biplane and high wing aircraft).
Nobile N4 Italia
As like the Norge, Italia is seen both through archive footage and animated footage.
The second Latham 47 airframe was used to search Nobile's crew, piloted by Frenchman René Guilbaud and three more French crewmen and the Norwegian pilot Leif Dietrichson. They picked up the explorer Roald Amundsen on 18 June 1928 at Tromsø, Norway and no one ever sees them again. The aircraft disappeared without a trace until, on 31 August the same year, the torn-off port float was found.
In this movie, Roald Amundsen is seen alone at the controls.
