Notes:

Sad ending to this one. A retired and half chopped C130 of the Ecuadorian Air Force remained at the old airport when it was closed. This one was completely chopped between October 2018 and May 2019 now only it nose remains at the Mariscal Sucre Base alongside FAE895 nose aswell. Some sources say that this Hercules used to be 58-0733 of the USAF. The same sources state that FAE895 was former USAF 57-0529. But, taking a closer look at FAE896 tail I could see the markings: "USAF 7 0529" so, I believe the past of this plane is mistaken. Thanks to Sandro Rota for pointing that data out.
