Peru: Planecrash - 11 January, 2003 - News

Peru's Air Force was searching for a plane carrying 42 passengers that radioed in distress and then disappeared while flying over Peru's Amazon jungle Thursday.

Tans Airline flight 1396 was three minutes from landing at an airport in the jungle city of Chachapoyas, 400 miles north of Lima, when it called in an emergency at 8:43 a.m., Tans spokesman Jorge Belevan said.

``That is when we lost contact with the plane, and we don't have more information,'' he said.

Belevan said the Air Force was searching for the plane, a Fokker 28.

The plane was flying from the coastal city of Chiclayo, 410 miles northwest of Lima, he said.
