Beautiful pic; only sad thing to see is that this airport seems to be in eternal renovation because it looks the same nowadays! Wadih.

Check the scale of the C-46 over the C-47 behind her. Perspective notwithstanding, the Curtiss plance is quite a bit bigger and was used extensively in Asian theatres of operation in WW2. I flew in one in Sept 1945 as a kid of 6 (Japan to Okinawa to Manilz). This plane evidently did the bulk of the carrying over the "hump" from India to Burma.

Very nice picture I'm glad that someone still have historic pictures of Lacsa's airplanes. I wonder if somebody have other pictures of Lacsa early airplanes.

As a costarican I rate this pic very high, the pic brings back nostalgia since I have been travelling in airplanes since very little!!! in particular I have fond memories of the lacsa days!! 727 all the way baby...
