Remarks: This Electra flew with American Airlines from 1960 to 1968, when it was sold to Lloyd Aereo Boliviano, before going to the FAB. I was told that, with them, it was once their "Air Force One," but those days are obviously far behind it now.
Remarks: Taxiing out for takeoff with about 15 of our group of 20 on board, for a pleasure flight. I had declined the opportunity, having flown in a Friendship of Balair in 1969. Unfortunately, this aircraft crashed in July 2008, fortunately with no fatalities.
