YV-C-AMB   Martin 2-0-2            (c/n  9130)

                              LAV were one of only three airlines to order the original Martin 2-0-2 (Northwest and LAN Chile
                              were the other two).  TWA and Eastern operated the updated 2-0-2A.  Three were originally ordered
                              but, in the event, only two were delivered.   YV-C-AMB is seen here at the Glenn L. Martin facility
                              in 1947 before delivery.  It was named "Rafael Urdaneta" , a hero of the Latin American war for
                              independence.   It was purchased for spares in 1960 by California Airmotive and broken up at Fox
                              Field, Lancaster, CA that same year.
