ECUADOR-AIRFORCE_HS748_UIO_1209jp.jpgAlways a pleasure seeing one of these HS748's come in. The Rolls Royce Dart engines sound so sweet, especially these days given that this airplane is extremely rare to see anywhere in the world!

LAN-CARGO_767-300F_UIO_1209jp.jpgQuito weather is very, very tricky. It can be totally cloudy and 5 minutes later the sun starts popping out, you just have to hope that out of 5 days you get 2-3 sunny ones!

MARTINAIR-CARGO_MD11_UIO_1209jp.jpgMartinair Cargo is a huge operator in Quito with sometimes 2 flights a day, primarily driven by flowers. Holland is famous for tulips but Ecuador is heavily involved in growing roses for export. Cargo planes go out full but it's volume, not weight when you carry flowers..

sam727UIODEC08.jpgFor my 500th photo I uploaded this special early morning Quito shot featuring an LAS Colombia 727 and the absolutely incredible jewel of Quito, the famous Cotopaxi volcano, which is over 19,000 feet high, seen here on this very clear winter morning. Note the incredible landscape on the bottom of the photo.

Note on bottom left is my good friend Dave Hartman who I was in Quito with for a few fine days of photography and a lot of good cheap food and beer!

martinairmd11ph-mcu1208.jpgShame that in 2010 this airport will be closed, a new airport much further from the city will take over operations. I have a feeling that the folks living near the current airport will not be too upset about this!

ecuadorAFhs748HC-AUKdec08.jpgHawker Siddley 748's are fairly rare at most airports in the world, however, at Quito they come in and out several times a day. Those Rolls Royce Dart engines humming along are music to an aviation lover's ears

QUITO-APPROACH-UIO_1208.jpgThis photo was taken from my hotel room balcony. Martinair Cargo MD11 performs final approach into UIO. As you can see, Quito is pretty tightly packed, lots of real estate, lots of cars, lots of people. Very unique place.
