Assist in the Recovery of a Historic Plane

Dear supporters, 

My name is Mauricio Umana, and I'm a mechanical engineer, a member of the Academy of Air History, and the author of several books on airplane crashes. For almost six months now, I've been funding an expedition to search for the wreckage of a historic airplane that crashed in the jungles of Sipí, Chocó. However, we've faced numerous setbacks, mainly due to the harsh winter weather that forced us to suspend the search for several months.

But we're not giving up. We're determined to recover this piece of aviation history and ask for your support. With your help, we can obtain the necessary resources and equipment to continue the search and bring closure to the families and friends of those who were aboard the aircraft.

Thank you for considering our cause, and we appreciate any support you can give.


Eng. Mauricio Umana
