HISTORICAL PHOTO: Aero Regionales AN-24B, LZ-MND, at Montevideo (MVD)

This was the only Russian aircraft to fly for a Uruguayan airline that the editor of this blog is aware of and the carrier did not last long.  Originally formed as Aerolineas Regionales Uruguayas in 1993-94, the airline shortened its name to Aero Regionales in 1994-95.  Its fleet consisted of only one aircraft flying between Montevideo (MVD) and Buenos Aires Aeroparque (AEP).    

LZ-MND was originally delivered to Aeroflot in 1969 but has flown for several airlines, most recently Air Urga of Ukraine and on lease to the United Nations at least as recently as 2007 when it was photographed in Belgrade, Serbia.
