This lovely Heron (ex Royal Navy XM296) unfortunately suffered an in-flight prop #3 separation, but made a successful emergency landing at Viru Viru, Santa Cruz, Bolivia. The separated prop also damaged the #4 engine. Aircraft stored, and still there by mid 2020.

Hard to imagine this DC-6 in its glory days with Tasman Empire Airways and Pacific Western Airlines amongst others. Now carrying "Vusumzi - I Am, We Are" titles, Vusumzi apparently means "one who restores and builds the family". It has 'A Step Ahead' and 'Odysseus' titles on the other side under the fire practice scorch marks. The (ex) Westwind in front is (was) N89XL

Nicknamed "Spotty" for obvious reasons, this is one of 38 Cheetah C variants which constituted South Africa's only fighters until superceded by the JAS39 Gripen in 2008. Ecuador will now be the only country flying this Mirage-derived design, taking 12 ex-SAAF examples

Posed here alongside a SAAF Mirage F1, a typical adversary from the wars fought by Angola since its independence in 1975, about 20 of the 100 or so Mig-21s delivered are thought still to be in service. Three are said to have fallen victim to the Mirages, but one was credited with shooting down an SAAF C-130 in 1986 - which did not actually happen
