May 12th, 2010

After a successful one-show visit to North America in 2009, the Brazilian Esquadrilha da Fumaça, or “Smoke Squadron” will make an encore visit to the United States and Canada this year. Brazil’s military formation team will perform at the Windsor International Air Show in Windsor, Ontario on August 21 and 22; at the Thunder over the Boardwalk Air Show in Atlantic City, New Jersey on August 25; and at the Boston-Portsmouth Air Show in Portsmouth, New Hampshire on August 28 and 29.

Established in 1952, the team flies the T-27 Tucano, a military training aircraft built by Embrear in Brazil.
