Saeta Flight # 232
Some years ago on the 15th of August, 1976 a regular
daily flight originated in Quinto, Ecuador and departed for
the southern Ecuadorian City of Cuenca. The normal flight of
40 minutes became a painful mystery only recently solved.
Flight # 232 never reached its destination. It completely
disappeared .. for 26 years. Ongoing investigations turned
up nothing, until finally they were terminated, accepting
the fact that 59 passengers and a 727 Boeing jet had
vanished. Countless rumors were spread as to the
disappearance of flight # 232, but for the last 26 years the
families of the 59 on board were not allowed peace of mind
and closure as to the plight of their loved ones. That
changed in February as Chimborazo Mountain climbers
discovered the Boeing jet imbedded in the snow and ice of
one of the highest volcanic mountains in the world. The
plane was almost intact and the bodies of the passengers
were kept preserved by the year-round icecap on the top of
Mount Chimborazo. The bodies have now been removed,
identified, and finally after 26 years of grief there has
come a closure that was not possible before.
