Small plane with 6 British tourists on board crashes in Peru, no survivors left

41856.jpegA small plane carrying British tourists crashed near the famed Nazca Lines in Peru on Saturday, killing all six people on board, police said.

The victims were listed as four Britons - three men and a woman - and the pilot and co-pilot, both Peruvian.

The Cessna plane apparently had engine trouble that led it to crash in a field, Nazca police chief Alfredo Coronel said. Police were working to recover the bodies, The Associated Press reports.

The Nazca Lines are a series of ancient geoglyphs, or mysterious drawings, carved into the desert 100s of years ago by tribes. Depicting a snake, spider, condor, humming bird, fish, llama, monkey, etc, the etchings are up to 300 yards long.

They have been made an UNESCO World Heritage Site and have become one of the most popular tourist destinations in South America, according to Fly.
