British Honduras, Cayo landing ground. The "Stinson" is the aircraft regularly employed between landing grounds in British Honduras, late 1930's

It carried three passengers plus the pilot and was operated by TACA.

In the late 1930's TACA Airlines established its FIRST plane fights within British Honduras (Belize Territory). This flight was between Belize City and San Ignacio del Cayo.

WHY SAN IGNACIO? - Because the biggest Operations in Mahogany and Chicle were in the West. There was the Mengel Luimber Company, which had a large mahogany operation behind Benque Viejo, with a Rail Road System.

There were some nine large Mahogany Contractors operating in Belize and Peten, in the extraction of thousands upon thousands of Mahogany logs and millions of pounds of Chicle Gum.

SO, there was a need for rapid communications for these operations.


I know that Ana Eri and Javier would remember because. she used to run to the Awe's to see the BIG IRON BIRD every morning.
