The DC-6 parked in a small garden in the coastal town of Puerto Colombia. There is no external identity visible, and the garden is now fenced off. But the airplane was first reported here in 2017, when they were cleaning up the airport in Barranquilla, some 35km east from here. A DC-6 and DC-8 were removed from the airfield, so I asume this DC-6 is the DC-6 from the dump in Barranquilla, HK-3530X ex Transoceanica Colombia. After arrival here in Puerto Colombia, engines were reinstalled and new fake cowlings have been installed.
