On a cold Chicago winter day on December 7, 1944, Mexico and 52 other nations came together to establish The Convention on International Civil Aviation, also known as the Chicago Convention, establishing the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO), a specialized agency of the United Nations charged with coordinating and regulating international air travel.
Today Puerto Vallarta, and the rest of the world, celebrated the 70th Anniversary of the International Civil Aviation organization.
The event held at the Puerto Vallarta International Airport included city, state, federal, civil aviation, and military together with the presentation of the intrepid team of paratroopers.
Also, US pilots joined Mexican pilots in their planes for an airshow that left local onlookers amazed by their skills and flying stunts.
While Puerto Vallarta Daily News received some concern about planes swooping and flying low over elementary schools and residential areas, the performance completed without incident.
The festivities included mariachi bands, dancing, and military salutes, attended by Mayor Ramón Guerrero Martínez.
