  • Description

    Brazil's civil air transport companies and military air force are commemorating this year's "SEMANA DA ASA" (Wing Week).

    At Rio's famous copacabana beach, two air shows were held, the first civil, the second military. Thousands of people watched the planes evolutions from the beach.

    This show has a special meaning in Brazil, as air transportation means a great deal to this vast and unexplored country. People have become used to plying so much that the rate of civil air transportation has increased tremendously the last few years. This flying tendency is started by president Kubitschek himself, who almost daily flies in his two Viscounts, event having a working table aborad, to go on working while aloft.
