Notes:

I finally managed to capture one of the new Airbus H145 of the Ecuadorian Air Force. These are the replacement of the old Dhruvs acquired long ago and which suffered several accidents. This helicopter based at the Simón Bolívar Air Base in Guayaquil but it was in Quito carrying out tests and altitude training, a quite unusual sight since this helicopters are almost never seen around here. Lifting off from the Mariscal Sucre Air Base in the old Quito’s airport, where this H145 spent the night, and heading to "La Balbina" heliport (SEBB) to continue with their daily training flights.
