First aerial crossing of the South Atlantic

Photo by Sailor Girl of a replica in steel of the Seaplane «Santa Cruz» which flew the last legs of the first aerial crossing of the South Atlantic in 1922 by Portuguese Heroes Gago Coutinho and Sacadura Cabral, two of the most reknowned naval officers in the World.

Um grande feito dos nossos Aeronautas do primeiro quartel do século XX. A viagem pretendeu assinalar o centenário da Independência do Brasil que se comemorou nesse ano de 1922...
