Aafke Gruttzen, a Dutch patriot, has been flying the Usumasinta River for over 42 years. This natural border
between Mexico and Guatemala is a long river which moves thousands of tons of water irrigating many kilometers in the
jungles of both countries
Aafke flies from Tenosique in Mexico to the Oil Refinary deep in the river basin. All Mail and general merchandise
travels in either his old 140 or DH2. Today, his last day on route, is sad and rainy. You will start flying the route
after tomorrow when he retires to Burgerbrug in his native Holland. Follow the river and you might be here for 42
more years like he did.
