  • Description

    The United States Air Force participates in Argentina's "Aviation Week". The units dive on the field and pull out with the thunderous explosion which means that the sound barrier has been broken.

    There are also several giant "Globemaster" troop transport aeroplanes. These aircraft have a capacity for over 200 fully laden combat troops, and an effective range of over 3,000 miles.

    Three CX-97 perform the big event of refueling in mid-air. The flying tankers crossing low over the field are followed by three B-47 jet bombers. Refueling contacts are made at the instant of crossing the field and broken off shortly after.

    The B-47 then blow out the parachutes that serve as a brake for lowering their landing speed.

    A fitting climax to the show is the exhibition of ultra-high speed precision flying put on by the famous "Thunderbird" Squadron in their supersonic F-100 Supersabres.
