The Colombian Air Force academy (EMAVI = Escuela Militar
de Aviacion) celebrated its 75th anniversary with a spectacular
show never seen before in the city of Calí. The show marked a
week of cultural celebrations in the city. Large numbers of attendees
showed up for the event that took off with parachuting
demonstrations by Aguila de Gules, the air force parachuting
team. The mighty sounds of EMAVI’s very own Stearman and
Beaver added to the historic ambiance of the moment. Flying
from their home base Palanquero, two Kfirs and a Mirage
thrilled the crowds and put on a very exciting low level show. A
T-41 simulated a downed aircraft with two of its pilots being rescued
by a C-SAR team, after which the dancing AH-60L Arpia
IIIs brought ecstasy to the huge crowd. The Brazilian Fumaça
team performed in the grand finale of a remarkable week of
celebrations, which hopefully created a precedent for similar
shows in Calí in the future.
