Just to clear off doubts. The reason why UIO
was closed, is simply the craziest thing I have ever seen in my life! (GYE closed beacuse they didnt want the president to escape through there) This is what happened:
As mentioned before, the president tried to escape, a EJERCITO helicopter (Gazel) picked him up from the palace and went to UIO
. A crazy guy came with a Chevrolet Blazer and knocked over UIO
's fence and about 1000 cars entered the RWY and 1000 people also.
The president boarded this aircraft:
The pilot taxied at about 55knots to RWY 17, and due to weather he couldnt take off, it was there when all the people entered the RWY and layed down on the RWY and the cars sorrounded the airplane so the plane couldnt take off!
THIS AMAZING OR
The plane returned to the Air Force base and the helicopter flew back there and picked him up again and flew him to a military base where the people couldnt get him.
Then more people, and more cars entered the RWY and started racing and sounding there horns with Ecuador flags flashing and so much more. Airport security couldnt do anything else than watch..... A friend of mine, Fellow UIO
spotter got in and made pics, ill get the pics later. You wouldnt believe it.
I talked with UIO
security and airport manager and they said they closed the airport because a plane couldnt land with people on the RWY!! So, at 19:00 local planes started to land again.
Ironically enough, I sold my cam a week ago, an my Olympus C-770 hasnt arrived yet. Hope you liked this story. More like a dream ehh?
And yeah, hes in the BRAZIL embassy, honestly, I dont know how the Brazilian President can accept such a criminal in his country. What a shame.
