HK-3993P painted in KLM colours when KLM introduced direct flights between Cali and Amsterdam in March 2015. It is clearly painted as PH-RBA. When I asked the museum staff explained they knew there already was a PH-PBA. Due to the full hangar in the Fenix Museum it is difficult to get clear shots.
Former Bahamas Airways was delivered to Colombia in 1977. Operated as HK-2058 in the San Andres Archipelo and in the Villavicencio area. Ended up in the Museo de Transporte in Cali Colombia. Late 2007 it got a US registration and was delivered back to Florida. When this photo was taken, it was no longer in the museum, but parked at the General aviation ramp. Many positions here are covered, due the the extreme westher conditions here. Brutal sun and heavy rains. An HK registration would have looked better on this white fuselage, than a former American Airlines DC-10 registration.
Both ASur DC-6 HK-1703 and HK-3301 (c/n 44637) parked between the hangars at the cargo area of Cali international airport in 2008. Later they were adopted by the Fenix museum located at the airport. They would be taking care of these two classics together with a ex Aerosucre B727. But after a while the museum employees were refused entry to the planes as they were parked on the active part of the airfield. Their future is unclear.
I first noticed this DC-3 in a hangar at the Cargo area of Cali in 2008, but was unable to identify it. In 2015 it had been taken into the caring hands of the Museum at the airport. A much better place for such a propliner. Still with its markings of the last operator, LAP Colombia.
