Taxiing in upon landing, here seen entering the Naval apron. The DHL terminal can be seen in the background.
Nice Seneca, about to leave the aeroclub, probably heading for the airfield Samuel Quimi / Barbones.
1982 flight deck.
Covered up in plastic. This frame has been sitting here at Barbones for yonks now.
One of 2 Pipers of which the Avimaq fleet consists.
Stored here in the weeds indefinitely, perhaps?
I have no idea what the future holds for this poor lady, hope to see her back in the skies soon!?
Parked at the very last apron of the airport.
The busiest airfield in the South of Ecuador, with hundreds of flights a month; mainly crop dusters.
Seen here at Nirsa, this is a 1967 frame!
ex-CC-CYF Now part of Lan Ecuador
Avimaq is one of the smaller crop dusting outfits. As far as I know, they operate 2 Brave 300`s.
This is a 1977 frame, older than I am!
I am not sure what the history is of this airframe.
Just before our departure late afternoon to Guayaquil. 12.000 feet, and 240 knots cruise, which makes it rather a quick trip.
