So today was the last day of operation at this airport, according to Wikipedia. That's probably good, as there have been so many accidents.

Wat ontzettend leuk en ook unieke beelden nu. Afgelopen juni met KLM naar Quito gevlogen...maar in de Valley geland. Eigenlijk wel goed dat deze strip nu gesloten is zo midden in de stad. Heel erg leuk om nog te zien.

Only 35 had an ILS at Quito. 17 had a VOR approach and a RNAV. There was a 11, 500 feet peak within 4 miles of the end of 17, actually where QIT VOR sits. The RNP RNAV 17 is pretty cool when good visibility as it hugs the mountain peak as it goes around for the runway.
