One of the most important festivals in military and civilian aeronautics in the region, this weekend turned out to be an unprecedented family trip. In it, it was possible to see a large number of airplanes in stationary specimens, often barely visible several feet high and also having various skills and passages in the air. There were hours of simulating aerial combat, with a large number of aircraft flying at high speeds, low altitudes and limited distances between them. That adrenaline generated a unique general sensation in the Buenos Aires area, where thousands of civilian families hugged along with the noble military family, in this case demonstrating the sense of belonging that exists in society in general.
