Destino final is a photographic and investigative journalistic project focused on the events and consequences of the Argentine military dictatorship. From 1976 until 1983, the military waged a war against “subversion”, thus attempting to exterminate all their antagonists. For aproximately 5.000 opponents of the Argentine dictatorship, final destination gained an atrocious meaning: drugged. unconscious, and loaded on military planes, infamously known as the “death flights”, they were thrown, still alive, to the Rio de la Plata, just before it reaches the Atlantic Ocean; their final, definitive destination. Just a few of their bodies were recovered. Their families are still looking for their remains and are seeking punishment for the guilty.
Destino Final, as a project, includes the search for the death flight planes, conducted worldwide by Ceraudo and Lewin, a successful investigation that brought to the discovery, after more than 30 years, of five Navy planes used for the “death flights” and of the detailed flight plans kept on board.
