Note: After almost two years, this Super Puma sees sunlight again. It underwent its 500-hour maintenance but due to many reasons, sat stored. In this photo, the pilots and ground crew, along with mechanics are working on aligning the rotors in...
Note: Unfortunately, we could not land at the bottom of the Pita River waterfall to take pictures, but the pilots did a great show with that amazing background... Below the chopper is the actual waterfall.
Note: Returning to La Balbina after the rehearsal of the air parade for the 212 years of Independence of Ecuador. Sadly this is the last operative Gazelle in the ecuadorian army fleet and it has its base at GAE 43 in Portoviejo and it only came...
Note: Taking into account the altitude, and the age of this chopper, in order to take off it first needs to gain speed. This picture was taken at the start of runway 02 and it used the whole length of it.
Note: The last Ecuadorian army Gazelle in service. Sad to think that a long time ago we had around 40 of these flying, but as years have gone by, they have been retired and sold. Also, new tech such as the Fennec has replaced these machines....
Note: After many years of service, it is sad to see this beauty now sitting at the entrance of the army flight school. At the moment this picture was taken, there is only one Gazelle still in service by the Army. Soon, that one will be retired...
Note: Flying over the city and my house during a beautiful afternoon alongside more Ecureuil, Fennec, Lama, Super Puma and Mi-17 helicopters, all of this during the rehearsal of the air parade due to the Ecuadorian Army day.
