This came as a surprise, a Mi-17 calling in on a cross-country flight from Quito. There's a cloud of mystery surrounding this airframe as the registration number is not registered anywhere. Her sister E-483 was written off close to the Peruvian border, and there are a few more of these Mi-17's in Ecuador. The exact number is hard to confirm though, perhaps some act as organ donor for this frame and a few others.
