"In 1973 my dad built a ranch and a 3,000 foot runway at the northern border (along the San Juan River). We flew off that grass strip many times. By 1975 there were many 'border crossings' with anti-communist rebels under commander Zero. We left in 1975. There are 'stories' of the CIA using that runway at night, after we were gone. The plane had landing gear problems on its last flight, and a prop was bent. So we left it on the runway. We returned several years later. The locals took the plane off our landing strip and placed it in the town square of a small village. It was 30 years ago when I was 18 and I am sorry but I do not remember the name of the village. They did fix the plane where it looked as if it could still fly."
Broken, the plane's remains were moved to the owner's residense and left in the yard. Notice that even the propellers have been painted red.
