O Moscas (Flies)

Haven't been processing any new pics, so another topic of memories, also back from 2005.

This a gone aircraft (and company). It was operated by Aerocondor which also operated the Madeira-Porto Santo route and went bankrupt.

It was used on a strange and diferent mission, in suport of the Madeira MED Program...spreading flies... :))

On a short explanation, there's a Govermental regional lab that "produces" sterile fruit flies and this plane was used to spread them over the island as a way of birth control of this species.

The plane was usually called "O Moscas" (The flies)...
