Jaime Duque was a Avianca pilot who set up this amusement park just north of Bogota. It contains several aircraft, including this DC-4. It is painted as Avianca HK-136, but that may not be its true identity (HK-136 crashlanded in a field in 1981). Access to the airplane for fact checking is impossible as the airplane is a huge windvane, mounted on a pole.

Loongana on its belly after the crew failed to lower the undercarriage. On 15 Nov 1954 the pilots of the Sydney-Brisbane flight were practising a new landing drill. The co-pilot was flying the aircraft and the captain handling flaps and gear. Despite warning horns, the captain was certain he had extended the gear and ordered the co-pilot to land. No injuries. The captain, with 23,000 hours in his logbook, was forced to resign from ANA. After minor repairs, VH-ANF ferried to ANA's Melbourne base for final repairs. During this work it was converted to freighter and remained in service until 1967. Sold to CAT in Taiwan as B-1811. Photo from: State Library of Queensland

The clearest shot I ever got of this interesting exhibit at the Aviodrome. After WWII KLM boss Albert Plesman was quick to obtain a number of C-54s. Initially they operated as government aircraft, including wartime orange triangle military markings, until things normalised along the airline's route to the East Indies. This airframe is not the real NL-316 / PH-TCD, which was c/n 10312. Being repainted in KLM colours in 2019 to celebrate the airline's 100th anniversary.
