The parachutists of the Air Force planned to land in the Largo do Colégio and brighten the ceremony of Oath of the Flag that took place this morning in Funchal. All five failed the target.
A gust of wind diverted the paratroopers and one of them landed on the roof of the College Church. Another landed inside the wine store at Rua dos Rerreiros, where he had to wait for the owner to arrive to open the door, so that he could leave. The rest did not land on buildings, but they did not hit the target either.
Although support was requested from the Funchal Firefighters Corps, both paratroopers eventually managed to leave by their own means from the places where they landed.
