Just before our departure late afternoon to Guayaquil. 12.000 feet, and 240 knots cruise, which makes it rather a quick trip.
Parked in the main hangar of Samuel Quimi.
The oh so useful and friendly runway of Vinces.
There`s no shortage of Cessna 188`s in Pasaje.
The brand new airfield of "Fumipalma Quevedo", operated by Fumipalma. This is home to only 1 Turbo Thrush, and gets the odd G.A plane when the owner decides to visit.
Parked at the Aeroclub del Ecuador.
Coming in from Manta, SEMT.
Fumipalma`s finest here on display.
The deserted runway of San Vicente. This airport used to have Boeing 737´s from Quito etc but nowadays only 1 mere LSA is based here. I hope for this airfield to stay open!
Being prepared for a flight.
This machine is called "El Gordis", which stands for the "Fat One". The whole Agroaereo fleet has interesting names, which makes each plane a little special.
Here seen in the Arica hangar.
Parked on a quiet day.
Still with the N-reg, I have no information on this frame.
Upon arrival from Manta (SEMT) I managed to shoot our ride. Beautiful plane, and a smooth jaunt! During this short trip we climbed to 12,000 feet, cruising at 240 knots.
