And another air accident at the Nazca Lines in Peru

The Wild West show Peru fobs off as tourism which has killed many people over the years strikes again. This photo from today Monday afternoon, just after the 5:30pm crash landing:

This time the light aircraft (which like all the Nazca fleet is overflown and undermaintained) lost power on take-off and crashed about a kilometre from the airstrip, taking down roadside electricity poles along the way. Luckily no deaths this time (to the time of publishing at least), though the four tourists and the pilot were all injured and taken to the local hospital.

My amazement about how Peru can be so proud of its Nazca Lines and not give a single shit about the planes that fly over it continues.
