Remarks: Two days after, you can get an idea about where the Iberia A340-600 stopped at the end of the RWY17. After landing the aircraft it skid out of control, and over shot the RWY into the grass area. Sadly, my first time sighting an incidente.
Remarks: EXCLUSIVE! First A318 for LAN Ecuador (ex CC-CVR)! One day before starting national service flights. LAN Ecuador is opening regular flights GYE-UIO-GYE. Later will operate to Cuenca and Galapagos. Congratulations LAN Ecuador!
Remarks: Take a look! Definetly this kind of "mattress grass", built a few years ago after several accidents and incidents at the RWY 17 threshold, was the salvation for this aircraft and the passengers.
Remarks: You can get another idea about the way the airport is located in the middle of the city. Perfect combination, buildings and mountains. Sorry, but the weather wasn't good. Pic taken from the cockpit of an Icaros F28, during final app RWY 17.
