Being pushed back into the hangar.
Beautiful runway, long enough to accommodate the largest of crop dusters; fully loaded.
Starting the take off roll. Data plate checked by myself.
Enjoying a maintenance check.
Seems to be a rotating bit missing on the front end.
Nice King parked here on the Endecots apron. Previously registered as N607DK.
Just landed, taxiing to the apron.
On her way to Runway 21, with Ecuador´s 2nd highest building in the background. I considered buying an apartment there, but it turned out a tad expensive! It has a cool view though!
Leaving the home apron, on her way to runway 21. New livery compared to the last picture of her in the JP-net database. I imagine these winglets must be a retrofit!?
Nice R-44 here being prepared for crop dusting work at Cerro Azul, just outside the City of Guayaquil. This was previously HB-XJS and arrived here from Switzerland. Built in 1997.
Nice classic cockpit.
Alas, the numbers are missing but this is the one threshold of "El Piedrero".
Wearing a different livery since her incident.
See database for picture 7479196, which was taken only half an hour after her mishap at Samuel Quimi airbase.
Parked here in the last hangar at Payo.
Very first J430 in Ecuador, here caught doing taxi tests.
Her first flight is expected soon, and she`ll be carrying personnel around shrimp farms, located on small islands in the Gulf of Guayaqui... (more)
