Madeira Airport: 50 Years!

The Madeira Airport celebrated yesterday it's 50th Aniversary.
The first runway, with 1600 meters was inaugurated in July, 8th 1964 by President of the Portuguese Republic at the time, Admiral Américo Thomaz.

Currently with a runway of 2781 meters lenght and a terminal building that are nothing close to the original ones, the airport is still the main entrance/exit door of the Island and Arquipelago.
Happy Birthday!
