San Diego, California, to Quito, Ecuador Flight Touches Down On
The Pilatus PC-12 of
Ambassador Theodore Gildred and the crew of Ecuador III, touched
down in Quito, Ecuador, on March 31, 2006, on schedule and 75 years
to the day from when his father landed in the same spot in 1931
flying a Ryan Brougham.
Accompanying Ambassador Gildred on this historic mission of
goodwill were his sons, Ted III and Stephen, and Erik Lindbergh,
grandson of Charles Lindbergh, who inspired the original mission to
Ecuador 75 years earlier.
The trip covered a distance of 4,200 miles and took seven days,
as the Ambassador and his team visited officials in major cities
throughout Latin America to commemorate the original flight and
rekindle the spirit of goodwill that served as its mission.
Ambassador Gildred flew his own PC-12 for Ecuador III, and it
was accompanied by a second PC-12 provided by Pilatus Business
Aircraft and their distributor, Aviation Sales Inc.
