Back to the scrapyard

Yep, if you read my previous posts, you´ll know that this plane is at a metal recycler in Aurora St. in Montevideo.
Last time I passed by, the place was closed, so i decided to drop by again and find out what plane it was that they have on their front yard.
As most of the people here, the owner was very friendly and he told me that it was a Fairchild AT -21 , from 1943 that had been decommissioned by the Uruguayan Navy. we even went inside and saw that it has most of its original equipment, including radio and receivers.

The cockpit still holds all the original paraphernalia. Afterwards the owner showed us some of his other trophies, like vintage radios,irons,typewriters etc.
