343 viewsAirline: TameType: Embraer 170Registration: N/AAirport: UIOCity: QuitoState: N/ACountry: EcuadorDate Taken: December 2009Quito's elevation of 9,186 feet makes for long rollouts and slow climbouts for the older jets. Most will bank right after takeoff on R35 to avoid the nearby Mirador mountain range. You can see how the clouds hang around the mountains making a clearing attempt dangerous.

368 viewsAirline: Fuerza Aérea EcuatorianaType: Lockheed C-130BRegistration: FAE894Airport: UIOCity: QuitoState: N/ACountry: EcuadorDate Taken: December 2009Several times a week the C-130 departs early for Guayaquil and is gone most of the day. The interesting fact I learned is any Ecuadorian citizen can fly on an air force aircraft to another Ecuador city for around $30. This includes the C-130, 727, and HS-748. So if you see one it most likely is carrying non-military personnel.

Quito is a city filled with sounds of horns, whistles, and old screaming aircraft engines. Still amazing to hear the crackle of those 737-200 engines as they power for takeoff. I remember that sound I used to hear when I was a child visiting my grandparents in the neighborhoods of Chicago Midway airport.
