    Hi Kris.
    I have just arrived home, i have so much stuff to unpack.
    Its a 50th anniversary comemoration medal of the I first long range flight to Macau.
    I have seen a few of these.
    Still a great example you have there.
    Cheers.

    The 3 pilots in the medal had to wait for Sacadura Cabral to finish his flight Lisboa - Rio de Janeiro (1922) on board biplane Lusitania. Then, in 1924 on board biplane Patria (Fatherland) they made their flight to Macau. I've uploaded pics of them.

    The study for the medal looks like it came from the photo
    of the trio of Airmen that JMM posted !

    In other words, the artist used the photograph
    to design his sculpture of the medal.........!
