  • Description

    The brazilian air force staged an air festival at Rio's Copacabana beach consisting of several demonstrations. Parachuting, jet bombing, etc.

    The result was not a happy one. 3 parachuters got killed due to strangling by the chutes nylon cords. This was motivated by the heavy wind which started blowing precisely at the wrong moment.

    Besides of that, the parachuters came down in the sea, quite far from the beach.

    Other demonstrations were more successful, made by jet planes and other aircraft.

    A huge crowd formed at famous Copacabana beach in order to see the show.
