The 100-escudo note with portraits of Viegas Gago Coutinho and Artur de Sacadura Cabral. One of three notes tied to a theme and introduced at the same time. Carlos Viegas Gago Coutinho (18691959) and Sacadura Cabral (18811924) were Portuguese aviation pioneers who were the first to cross the South Atlantic Ocean by air, from March to June 1922, from Lisbon to Rio de Janeiro.
