In late 2008 / early 2009 a fissure was discovered in 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was unable to repair that problem in Guayaquil and was unable to fly the plane to Latacunga to get it fixed, it was withdrawn from use.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.
Super-rare and very shiny Ryan SCW-145 at the Antique Aeroplane Association of Australia's National Fly-in. One of just 12 built, this aircraft was manufactured on 18 May 1938 and registered NC18916. Later re-registered N46207, then exported to Australia and re-registered appropriately as VH-SCW on 26 November 2014.
Lovely OY-1 Stinson (a naval version of the L-5E) making an early morning departure from the Antique Aeroplane Association of Australia's National Fly-in. The aircraft has been restored to accurate markings it wore in USN service. VH-NOY made its first post-restoration flight on 29 March 2007. The aircraft is on the Register with cn '03995', but as far as can be determined this is actually its Bu number.
