Iberia Celebrates 90 Years of Spainís Civil Aviation

MADRID Ė The Spanish minister of industry inaugurated on Thursday an exhibition in Madrid organized by Spainís national airlines and the EFE news agency tracing the origins of international civil aviation and the development of the countryís pioneering national carrier.

IŮigo de la Serna opened the exhibition at Madridís Conde Duque cultural center as part of a series of events celebrating Iberiaís 90 years of existence as Spainís flagship airline.

The exhibition includes photographs, videos, documents and objects related to both Spainís civil aviation heritage and Iberiaís own historical memory.

The minister was greeted by Antonio Vazquez, the president of IAG consortium Ė Iberiaís holding corporation Ė the president of Iberia, Luis Gallego and EFEís president, Jose Antonio Vera, who accompanied the minister during his visit.

The retrospective features images, scale models, videos, documents, historic Iberia airplane tickets, vintage flight-crew uniforms created by top ateliers or an aircraftís black-box detailing its internal workings.

The exhibition will remain open to the public until Dec. 3, and it includes an aviation-themed interactive game-zone and a selfie area where visitors can take a picture seated on a 1927 airplane seat that belonged to Iberiaís very first aircraft, a Rohrbach Roland, powered by three BMW engines and a top speed of 205 kilometers per hour (127 mph) that, in the presence of King Alfonso XII, took off from Madridís Cuatro Vientos aerodrome with 10 passengers who flew on-board Iberiaís first commercial air-route linking Madrid with Barcelona.
