Note: Sin imaginar que esta sería una de las últimas fotos que pude captar de Equair. El pasado 30 de Septiembre la aerolínea anunció la suspensión de operaciones debido a factores económicos. Adiós Equair!
Note: Another incredible catch from the day I went planespotting with my dear friend Eric. This special Avianca retro livery of Aerogal was spotted minutes before departing with destination to New York, USA on a sunny afternoon.
Note: A simple livery on this BE55 Baron which was arriving to its school hangar (West Pacific) after landing at runway 21 from Tachina (SETN). Great to return to planespotting with my friend Mauricio, after more than one year of being inactive....

For the first time in the history of the Guayaquil airport (since its construction), this majestic plane arrived from Madrid to make a charter flight on the Guayaquil - Madrid - Doha route.
Note: Arriving from Manaus (SBEG) empty, as you can see by the windows all closed. One of the many A320N that Azul brought to Guayaquil for transporting soccer fans to the final match of the Copa Libertadores held at Guayaquil. Special thanks to...
