Quite a surprise when we arrived at Samuel Quimi (Barbones) due to a minor hiccup in our plane, only to find this Thrush lying in the banana plants! For reasons unknown, the pilot lost his bearing and parked in the ditch. Considerable damage, but hopefully repairable. Thanks Juliana for helping with this pic, and what a registration; something like CFIT! Dataplate checked by myself.
Nearly got taken out by the wing of this Turbo Thrush as she touches down! The distance to the aircraft can be pretty deceptive when you are looking through a zoom. The things we do for the good pictures! Dataplate checked by myself. (Nikon D610 + Nikkor 80-400mm f/4.5-5.6G AF-S VR ED)
Coming in for just a quick pit stop, the engine was left running, chemicals were loaded and she was back in the air within minutes. I believe she's based at the much larger base "Pasaje", close to the Peruvian border. Dataplate checked by myself. (Nikon D610 + Nikkor 50mm f/1.4G AF-S)
