Ecuador
Elia Luit & José Abel Castillo

In 1920 the Italian 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 honour to the newspaper that sponsored the raid. José Abel Castillo was the owner of the newspaper "Telegrafo I".
