wreckplane:

"On April 30th 1964, this Curtiss Commando was cruising at 18000 feet from Copiapo (Chile) to Cordoba (Argentina), carrying 8 race horses from Lima (Peru) and 6 people (4 crew members). A sudden malfunction in an engine forced the crew to try an emergency landing on the half dried lake "Laguna Brava", at 4271 meters. All were rescued 2 days later, except the horses, and the plane which is in good condition but scrapped due to the difficulty and risk of repairing it there."http://www.airliners.net/photo/Untitled-%28Aerolineas-Carreras%29/Curtiss-C-46F-Commando/1170067/L/
