Replica of Santa Cruz, one of the three Fairey IIID's used when the Portuguese Lieutenant Commander Sacadura Cabral (pilot) and Cdr. Gago Coutinho (navigator) crossed the Atlantic from Portugal to Brazil in 1922. The two first aircraft (Lusitania and Portugal ditched and sank), but with Santa Cruz they completed the voyage. The replica is a part of a memorial in Lisbon.
