Air Force 71st anniversary celebrations see 50 soldiers go down with food poisoning

What should have been a perfect day last Saturday, when the Air Force celebrated its 71st anniversary in Bragança, was a little dampened by the fact that 50 military personnel were struck by food poisoning, and are reportedly still receiving treatment in the field hospital set up for the event. Health service personnel are now trying to establish the source of the outbreak, given that 500 military involved in the various fixtures, were staying at local hotels.
