Photo Comment

One of two DC-3s on display at the parachute jumping base of the Escuela de Fuerzas Especiales No.9 (hence the "EFE-9" on the fin), along the Pan-American highway north of Latacunga. Note the missing engines and very fake props. A photo of the other DC-3 can be found here. Unfortunately neither aircraft could be positively identified because all data plates had been removed. This one is fitted with regular C-47 cargo doors on the other side. (Nikon D610 + Nikkor 18-35mm f/3.5-4.5G ED AF-S)
