TI-BBG (cn 208B0572) Parked outside the Sansa terminal at San Jose/Alajeula, this Caravan shows off its tail feathers based on the wing feathers of the Scarlet and Blue Macaw, a large indigenous parrot native to the area. Since this time, the planes have been repainted to more closely represent their association with TACA.

TI-BAN (cn 208B0710) Four years ago from this very day, I was sitting in the Sansa terminal at San Jose, Costa Rica awaiting my ride to Quepos, an old fishing village situated on the Pacific coast, and an increasingly popular tourist destination. This turned out to be one of the most memorable and best vacations of my life! I shot this photo from inside the tiny Sansa terminal as my friend and I greeted the arrival of the aircraft that would take us to paradise.

TI-AZU (cn 208B0640) (Best to view at 1152.) Turning out for departure, this Sansa Caravan is headed back to San Jose, from where I had arrived just a short while ago aboard another Sansa Caravan.
