In 1933, Italian leader Benito Mussolini allegedly formed a top secret UFO study group to investigate a flap of flying triangle UFOs being sighted all over Italy at the time. Active until 1940, the Italian government organization compiled many documents and pictures that were kept secret.
Italian TV station RAI DUE interviewed two Italian ufologists who exhibited two 1933 teletype messages in which Mussolini ordered censorship of any information relating to "possible appearance of crafts of unknown origin or unknown phenomena-especially he notes that he forbids the spreading of information about some kind of triangle-shaped UFO landing near Milano."
The discovery of some documents from the fascist era of Italy opens up new horizons for research on UFOs, and compels students of this subject to amend the official history of the flying saucers. Under "Il Duce", Mussolini, there was a secret government commission of enquiry, known as the RS/33 cabinet, which studied the UFOs.
The story of the newly discovered "Italian Fascist UFO files" had its start in 1996, when an anonymous person (whom we shall call "MR. X") began sending, to various central and local organizations, documents - both originals and photostats - relating to a series of UFO sightings which had occurred over Italy during the 1930s and 1940s. The communications, which had emanated from various regions in Italy, and even in France, were all rigorously anonymous and unsigned. One of the first packages was addressed to the Bologna daily newspaper *Il Resto del Carlino*, and *contained a bulky dossier of 34 photocopied pages covering various UFO
sightings in the regions of Italy between 1933 and 1940 - some of them in fact reports from the Royal Italian Air Force, with the recommendation "SAY NOTHING TO IL DUCE*"

Well so far,
but can anyone show me the "triangle" part in these documents?
And why would recovered UFO tech alter existing aviation tech rather than replacing it?
