added picture 1 as N68870 it has probably just arrived in Ecuador and appears to be fueling. Anyone think they have aviation gas at this gas station.

I bet they are probably filling up with the 97 octane ethyl that was still available at that time.

earlier added pictures 2 and 3

the recent photo looks like the accident wasn't to bad
