Photo Comment

Ex Mexicana XA-NAT, in derelict condition. Was sold to Westernair of Albuquerque in Apr 1973 and registered as N777WA a year later, but this registration was never painted on the aircraft. It was ultimately dismantled at Mexico City in the 1980s and trucked to the Parque Hidalgo de Irapuato in Irapuato, which became the Parque Zoológico Irapuato in Apr 1993. The aircraft remained on display there until scrapped in March 2015.
