The Junkers F 13 was the world's first all-metal transport aircraft, built in Germany at the end of World War I. It was an advanced design with accommodation for four passengers. The Atlantico was a particularly important plane, one of two that flew on SCADTA’s 1925 Central American Survey Flights.

This oversize postcard shows an artist’s rendering of the Atlantico on the Magdalena River at a village at Barranquilla, SCADTA’s main base. The back of the card reads JUNKERS FLUGZEUGE Pioniere des Weltluftverkehrs (translates to pioneers of world aviation) Junkers – F-13 besucht ein Wasserdorf Bei Barranquilla (Columbien) I am not sure when or where this card was printed, but I believe it is later than the survey flight and likely was made in Germany. The card is mint. Someone long before I owned this card wrote a pencil 30 (price)on the back Please see the scans.
