In 2003, on April 11, 12 and 13, the city of Gorizia celebrated Aviation’s 100 years, with a big manifestation of national and international level. Among the exposed airplanes, was the historical “Flyer”, constructed by brothers Wright and EDA V, constructed by Rusjan brothers. Both of them were able to fly. Fifty-six exhibitors and constructers of sophisticated airplane models were present. There were numerous ULM, gliders and helicopters. The  “Barco” organized a big contest of simulated flights, which were really appreciated by spectators. Many conferences were also organized and people who were present on these days appreciated a parachutist’s launch. At the end of the exhibition, the big performance of the national acrobatic patrol, the “Frecce tricolori”.
