Background: This country still calculated ICAO’s 40th anniversary on the basis of the constitution of the new permanent International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) on 4 April 1947, although, since its fortieth anniversary, ICAO had decided to commemorate the anniversaries on the basis of the ending date of the Chicago Conference, i.e. 7 December 1944.
