  • Description

    On the occasion of the courtesy visit paid to Vigo by the "Eagle", a carrier of the British Fleet, an air-naval exhibition is celebrated to which Spanish Chiefs and Officers of the three armies assist as observers.

    36,800 tons are displaced from the deck of the carrier; launched through the hydropneumatic catapult the jets make a brilliant display.

    Fighting planes take part in a fake attack of the ship defended by the anti-air guns.

    The planes land on deck with wonderful accuracy.

    The salvage helicopter performs an exercise over the vessel. In it the ability of the pilot and the safety and easy control of the helicopter are put to test.
