Nice memories? I´d say the best memories of aviation in my life! Have a look at my user name: TR763 - this means something!
Tranbrasil - the greatest airline that Brazil have ever seen in it´s skies!
The crew were simply fantastic! They treated us as we were kings! I remember very well of a F/A called Katia on a flight from GRU to MCO, aboard a 767-300... what a treatment she reserved to HER passengers! For sure, an airline that I miss a lot! Besides it´s beautiful planes, giving lots of colors to the airports and skies!
It was part of my life!
That's precisely what I asked before.
You said that "Their owners were not the same, neither their aircraft". I agree with you with the second part [about the aircrafts, which in the bottom is not important at all]. But how do you know that their owners were not the same?
BTW I find such point also senseless. It could be the same case as AV before and after Efromovich. Is it or not the same airline? I think IS the same.
Lanica was first property of Anastasio Somoza Debayle. And back in the 70's Howard Hughes [sorry but don't know if I wrote such last name correctly] he gifted the airline [Somoza' family. Remember that HH lived in Nicaragua at the very end of his life] with two beautiful aircrafts that I can barely remember.

Quoting RICARIZA (Reply 3): Never flew on them, but another two defunct Colombian Airlines:
Aerotal and Aerocondor.
Aerocondor was a top notch Airline for what I've read and heard.
They had the first A-300 in Latin America (HK-2057), they were sort of the Aces of their time (the second Airline in Colombia and harsh competition to Avianca), they went belly up because of mismanagement, it was sold two times but the it seems only the founders could run the Airline, it went bankrupt in the early 80s. The Pilots lasted a year negociating for a revival, but the financial conditions were so bad that it was impossible.
I know an ex-Aerocondor Curtiss, Electra and 707 captain! (he also flew DC-8s for Arca Cargo)
Aces is definitely missed as well!.
I gladly accept donations to pay for flight hours! This thing draws man...
: With both AeroPeru, Faucett and AeroContinente gone, there are no more true national airlines in Peru. LanPeru is fully-owned by LanChile (although th
