    Don't know the make, I took another pic of the plane from the outside, just know it is from the 80s or 90s, twin engine prop, still in use for paratrooper training

    Fun capture! I wish the exterior was not blown out, but difficult to arrive at a different result with those conditions.

    The control yoke is rather unique so i thought I might be able to identify the aircraft from that but no go. Based on web available flight deck photos it is NOT a Twin Otter, Short 330/360, Beech King Air, CASA C212, GAF Nomad, ATR 42/72, or a Dornier Do28.

    It's a DC-3

    One of the turbine conversions.

    Edit: I sounded very confident, like I knew it instantly lol. No, I googled the El Salvador Air Force and saw a list of aircraft. :)

    Looks possibly like all or part of an old round motor DC3 out the window
