Departing from Lisbon to Rio de Janeiro, the captain and pilot Sacadura Cabral along with the navigator Gago Coutinho successfully carried out the first aerial crossing of the South Atlantic using innovative techniques.

The Lusitânia seaplane - represented on this commemorative coin by the sculptor José João de Brito - evokes the spirit of adventure and ingenuity that leaded the Portuguese further. A century after the achievement of Gago Coutinho and Sacadura Cabral, may it continue to inspire us for new flights.
