Conviasa Flights to Angel Falls
You’ve just got to visit ANGEL FALLS: Although sighted in the early 20th century the explorer Ernesto Sabchez La Cruz the waterfall was not known to the Western world until it was visited in 1935 by the American aviator, James Crawford Angel on a flight whilst searching for a valuable ore bed. In 1936, he returned and landed his plane at the top of the waterfall. The falls are currently named "Angel Falls" after him. Angel’s Flamingo monoplane settled down into the marshy ground atop Auyan-tepui and remained there for 33 years before being lifted out by a helicopter. Jimmy Angel’s plane now sits in the Aviation Museum in Maracay. Alternative Airlines the UK site for immediate confirmed on-line bookings. [Conviasa Aircraft]
