The aircraft of the Latam company, which was going to fly to the city of Juliaca, suffered the fire of the right wing and the tail
At least two aeronautical firefighters died yesterday at the Jorge Chávez international airport, which serves Lima (Peru), due to the collision of a plane that was moving along the takeoff runway with a truck in which rescuers were going, according to the concessionaire Lima Airport Partners (LAP).
As a result of this crash, the Latam company aircraft, which was going to fly to the city of Juliaca, suffered a fire to the right wing and tail, which prevented its takeoff, and then the evacuation of its passengers and the crew, with an unknown number of minor injuries from bruises.
The images of the accident were immediately shared on social networks and, in them, you can see how several fire vehicles are deployed through the airport and one of them gets in the way of the plane, hitting a wing.
The company that manages the Lima airport expressed its solidarity with the families of the victims, with whom it has made itself available, and explained that it is carrying out investigations to determine the causes of the accident. The airport of the Peruvian capital was forced to suspend its activity for several hours.
