Two Peruvian air force officers died Friday when their small aircraft crashed at a base in Pisco province, north of Lima, the military said.
The accident occurred at 1:20 p.m., the police chief in the nearby town of San Andres, Oscar Arrue, told the official Andina news agency. Killed in the crash were Capt. Victor Bustamante Velasco and Maj. Angel Cano Machado, both assigned to the 51st Air Group.
“The accident occurred in the circumstances of a training flight,” Arrue told Andina. “The causes are being investigated.”
