    "G Villoresi" in text and tags should read Luigi Villoresi.

    "Farina" is Nino Farina.

    "Bonnetto" should read Felice Bonetto.

    "they get on the aeroplane" - it's a Douglas C-54A Skymaster, operated by Aerolineas Argentinas.

    Luigi Villoresi was known as Gigi Villoresi, so "G Villoresi" is not entirely wrong.
