Centenary of first airplane flight in Chile

Hi everyone!!!
Long time without posting anything, but I came back.
Yesterday we celebrated the centenary of the first flight of a aeroplane in Chile. In 21th August 1910, Copetta brothers purchased in France one aeroplane Voisin. Then in Chile, they started the assembly process, when they finished performed the first flight in a farm called “Valparaíso”, which today is a square just a couple of blocks from my house.

In the celebration participated some old and classic airplanes from many differents Clubs and owners, and the National Airspace Museum made a static show with some old Chilean Air Force Aircraft and some civilian and one now in service in the Air Force.

Well these are some images of that great day.

Hi, thanks for your comments.
In effect TonyO, in Chile we love the flypast, because we have very few times at year to see airplanes in formation, specially civilian ones.
Sadly the place where the planes overflew was not very clear with many trees and big buildings, for that reason I taken my shots with the sun in front of me.

I'm so glad DanO1978, with share here my humble images, and show some airplanes from that part of the world.

Happy Greetings from Chile!!!
