WOW! I was born 1984 and my grandfather (R.I.P.) used to take me to this place since i was 2 or so. I remember he had this little blue radio with a huge antenna, he was able to hear the air traffic controller speaking to the captain from sahsa, or other airlines. This picture brought a huge smile to my face, very nice pic, great memories. Thank you.

Great

A visitor from United States posted Thu June 1, 2006:
I think that this is an extremelly dangerous manouver since the wing is to close the trees...

Great photo though!!

A visitor from Honduras posted Sat January 14, 2006:
It has to be, I used to go to this place too, usually on Saturdays. From three to five in the evening the place was packed with dreamers like me... Man, you felt as if you could touch the wings of those planes and the sound, the sound is impossible to explain...

Having spent many afternoons at the Infinito in the mid-80's, scanner in hand, it was always a unique experience to feel (really!) the wake turbulence from the 727s and 737s. Carside trays would fly up frequently, crashing dishes shortly thereafter. The place was shut down in the late 80's to improve safety. I had a series of very similar pictures I took, which I unfortunately lost. Brings back wonderful memories.

A visitor from Honduras posted Mon October 24, 2005:
Have to say an incredible shot,havent seen a sahsa plane with its original colors since i was just a kid and well then the airline went broke and havent seen a pic especially a 727 marvelous plane , have to say i remember this place, my mom used to take me there to see the planes land

A visitor from United States posted Wed October 5, 2005:
This is a really cool shot. From this angle, the wing appears to be seconds away from taking out that tree!!! Also, nice to see a 727 seeing as though I havent seen one in use in forever.

Trees Ahead by member September11
Trees in sight - avoid them! A tree is a perennial woody plant. It is most often defined as a woody plant that has many secondary branches supported clear of the ground on a single main stem or trunk with clear apical dominance.
