Curtiss C-46 Commando

The Curtiss C-46 Commando is a low-wing, twin-engine aircraft derived from the Curtiss CW-20 pressurised high-altitude airliner design. Early press reports used the name "Condor III" but the Commando name was in use by early 1942 in company publicity. It was used primarily as a cargo aircraft during World War II, with fold-down seating for military transport and some use in delivering paratroops. Mainly deployed by the United States Army Air Forces, it also served the U.S. Navy/Marine Corps, which called it R5C. The C-46 filled similar roles as its Douglas-built counterpart, the C-47 Skytrain, with some 3,200 C-46s produced to approximately 10,200 C-47s.

Show sight on map

The Heroines of the Crown were a group of women who fought during the war of independence of the Real Audiencia de Charcas, on May 27, 1812, in the city of Cochabamba facing the royalist general José Manuel de Goyeneche (1760-1814) who attacked the city after winning the Battle of Pocona three days earlier. The women of the city, led by Manuela Gandarillas, finding themselves without the patriot army, organized themselves and decided to resist the Spaniards. They entrenched themselves at the top of the hill of San Sebastian, in the place known as La Coronilla, about 1400 m from the center of Cochabamba where the royalist soldiers defeated them.
