    In 1920 an Italian pilot, Elia Liut, made the first flight over the Andes in Ecuador, traveling from Guayaquil on the coast to Cuenca in the mountains.

    For this he used a HD.1, war surplus, which he named "Telégrafo I" in honor of the newspaper that sponsored the raid.

    This and subsequent flights over Ecuador persuaded the government to establish an aviation school on 27 November 1920, giving rise to what became the Air Force of Ecuador.

    I designed a commemorative model Telégrago I scale 1 / 45. Is well advanced but still need to finish the prototype.
