Only one large hangar and that was cleared to make room for booths, so everything was outside. The small static was partly parked under sun sheds on the fligthline and on the ramp near the hangar. A-29A 5733 sported nose art, a naked lady with a jaguar on a leach, to commemorate the fifteenth anniversary of 1°/3°GAv Escorpião. The rest of the flight line and large open shed were not accessible to the public, but you could walk along the fence outside the operational area and easily see everything that was parked there. In fact, from the road along the outside perimeter towards the gate you can probably read off the whole flight line. You could win a flight with the Caravan, one of the C-105s (2800) dropped paratroopers and one of the Super Tucanos flew (5717). The visitors were parked on the terminal side of the airfield. All in all a good chance to spot the Super Tucanons from Escorpião squadron!
