Photo Comment

In late 2008 / early 2009 a fissure was discovered in Tame Línea Aérea del Ecuador 727 HC-BHM's nose gear structure after landing in Guayaquil. It was declared "unsafe to fly" by the authorities. As Tame was unable to repair that problem in Guayaquil and was unable to fly the plane to Latacunga to get it fixed, it was withdrawn from use. Most of its parts were removed to be used for Tame's other 727s. Plane was abandoned at the Simón Bolivar Air Force Base. In late 2015 it was purchased and was moved to an amusement named "Rey Park" park outside Pajonal, Guayas province.
