After the promising start at Boa Vista airshow, hopes were high for Porto Velho. I must say, it lived up to the expectations! All but 1 aircraft present were logged. However, construction of a second large hangar is well under way and that is going to house the AH-2 (Mi-35M) fleet, if they are ever going to accept the rest of them that is… This unit was still under a large open shed now. No sign of any H-50 (Squirrel), so these are probably not used anymore since the unit moved here from Recife. The second large hangar was used for, you have guessed it right, food courts! The Super Tucano fleet was therefore largely parked to the south of the new hangar with a handful out on the flightline and none under the main row of sheds. Unfortunately, the Mi-35 shed was off limits although somehow I got lost, so I could make another construction number. Later I saw that the c/n is on the red cover on the port side of the tail. Obviously, this is not fixed to the aircraft but the c/ns on there are almost surely delivered to Brazil. Three more c/ns were acquired in this way. Next to the Mi-35 shed was an A-29 wreck under a tarpaulin. This was the sole thing that remained unidentified. The show ended with a tropical downpour, an alleviating experience as it was basking all day, it provided a dark grey back drop for the Fumaça demo that was considerably shortened due to the incoming weather.
