NOTE:

“Then the nations that are left round about you shall know that I the LORD rebuild the ruined places, and replant that which was desolate: I the LORD have spoken it, and I will do it.”

This series is a documentation of Lloyd Aéreo Boliviano (LAB), one of the world’s oldest surviving airlines. Founded in 1925, it has played an important role in every stage of the country’s history. Currently under threat of closure and with its downed fleet of aircraft slowly crumbling away, this airline continues to survive through the loyalty and faith of its remaining unpaid 180 staff.

The title of the work takes its name from the airlines only possible saviour, its last operational airplane called Ezekiel 36:36

LAB first opened a flight school in 1927, and counts Bolivia’s first civil aviation pilot among its students.
