Bodø Air Show 2012 (2)
Norway

Bodø Air Ahow, held 16 & 17 June 2012, hosted a large number of old planes - with this the among the oldest one still flying - the Bleriot XI. This type of air craft first visited Norway in 1910, when the Swedish nobleman baron Carl Cederström flew a display show at Oslo (former Christiania), and thus the first air craft to do a flight in Norway. This is one of the oldest, flying examples of Norwegian aviation history!

The plane is now owned by Mikael Carlson, who has built and restored his Bleriot XI himself. It was finished in 1991, and have been on regular flights since then. It has even crossed the Channel – 90 years after the creator of the air craft, Louis Blériot, did it in 1909! The plane was shipped to Bodø in a container, and assembled the day before the show.

More About Europe

Europe is generally agreed to be the birthplace of western culture, including such legendary innovations as the democratic nation-state, football and tomato sauce.The word Europe comes from the Greek goddess Europa, who was kidnapped by Zeus and plunked down on the island of Crete. Europa gradually changed from referring to mainland Greece until it extended finally to include Norway and Russia.Don't be confused that Europe is called a continent without looking like an island, the way the other continents do. It's okay. The Ural mountains have steadily been there to divide Europe from Asia for the last 250 million years. Russia technically inhabits "Eurasia".Europe is presently uniting into one political and economic zone with a common currency called the Euro. The European Union originated in 1993 and is now composed of 27 member states. Its headquarters is in Brussels, Belgium.Do not confuse the EU with the Council of Europe, which has 47 member states and dates to 1949. These two bodies share the same flag, national anthem, and mission of integrating Europe. The headquarters of the Council are located in Strasbourg, France, and it is most famous for its European Court of Human Rights. In spite of these two bodies, there is still no single Constitution or set of laws applying to all the countries of Europe. Debate rages over the role of the EU in regards to national sovereignty. As of January 2009, the Lisbon Treaty is the closest thing to a European Constitution, yet it has not been approved by all the EU states. Text by Steve Smith.
