On September 30, the Air Force Awards ceremony took place, which this year was sponsored by the SENER Foundation in the category of Aeronautical Modeling. The meeting, presided by the Spanish Minister of Defense, Margarita Robles, was also attended by SENER Aerospacial's General Manager of Defense, Rafael Orbe, and Fernando Horcada, Director of EU and NATO Programs at SENER Aeroespacial and Head of the Spanish Delegation to NATO's Industrial Advisory Group.
In the category sponsored by the SENER Foundation, the winners were, in aeromodelling, Luis Mira Gómez-Calcerrada, for his work entitled "Fin de curso (Junkers JU-290)", and Íñigo Rodríguez Caballería, in diorama, for his work entitled "Evaluación del Autogiro de la Cierva por el Ejército del Aire". The jury, which included Fernando Horcada, highlighted the quality of the works presented, both in execution and detail, as well as in the faithfulness of the representation of the original models.
With these awards, which this year celebrate their 17th edition under the claim 'Values and tradition', the Air Force and the SENER Foundation aim to contribute to the promotion of aeronautical culture, artistic creation and the dissemination of the values of the Air Force.
