Photographer's Note

The Aerial Demonstration Squadron (Portuguese: Air Demonstration Squadron), popularly known the Smoke Squadron (Portuguese: Smoke Squadron) is the Brazilian Air Force's air demonstration squadron. Its first display was on 14 May 1952 over Copacabana beach.
The EDA was disbanded in 1977 but reformed on 8 December 1983 using Neiva T-25 Universal piston-powered aircraft, soon to be Replaced by the then-new Embraer EMB 312 Tucano turboprop trainer.

The Aerial Demonstration Squadron does more than show the professionalism of the members of the Brazilian Air Force during its flybys. Patriotism, courtesy and attention in dealing with the public are some of the many values ​​cultivated by all members of the Escadrille. Through lectures for public and private institutions and visits to charities, the smoke of the military seeks to motivate and exalt all its values, and bring a little joy and optimism to all those with whom they interact.

After making his demonstration in the city of Juiz de Fora (MG) on August 13 to more than 50 thousand people, the Smoke group complements its shares with several other public relations activities for the city, totaling interaction with more than seven philanthropic and educational entities juizforanas.
