TNCA Teziutlán: Steamrolled by the Gringos.

Pretty Mexican primary trainer designed by my namesake Antonio Sea. Powered by a 125hp Lycoming engine, this conventional all-wood monoplane was built almost entirely with indigenous materials. Of note also was the Teziutlán’s generous wing surface; it was conceived to operate easily from the country high-altitude airfields. First flown in 1942, just 5 were produced by the Talleres Nacionales de Construcciones Aeronáuticas (TCNA) due to political changes and the start of the huge US aviation aid.

A very decent looking thing, methinks.
