Un avión con 42 pasajeros a bordo de la compañía TANS fue declarado en emergencia y desaparecido este jueves luego de salir del aeropuerto de Chiclayo (norte de Perú), informó Jorge Belevan, vocero de la aerolínea.
La nave, un Fokker F-28 tenía como destino la ciudad amazónica de Chachapoyas, dijo el funcionario a la emisora RPP al tiempo de informar que ya se iniciaron las labores de búsqueda por parte de la Fuerza Aérea.
"El avión fue declarado en emergencia a las 08H43 y en las aproximaciones al aeropuerto de Chachapoyas, hasta ahí es la información que tenemos porque luego se perdió contacto con la aeronave", añadió Belevan a la emisora limeña.
Añadió que se inició la búsqueda pero que la aeronave tenía suficiente
combustible. "No descartamos la posibilidad de que la nave pueda haber aterrizado en un aeropuerto alterno", anotó el vocero al precisar que las condiciones del tiempo eran normales y no se reportó ninguna anomalía climática.
El Fokker F-28 había partido del aeropuerto de Lima y tras aterrizar en Chiclayo, unos 700 km al norte de la capital, partió hacia el este, a la ciudad de Chachapoyas, capital de Amazonas, ubicada al otro lado de la cordillera de los Andes. La mayoría de pasajeros había abordado la nave en Lima.
At least they got the airplane right.. its a F-28
Hope its just on another airport

This is truly sad, TANS Peru was coming along quite well, I am hoping ( as a Peruvian) that this does not scare away tourist from flying the airline as that would hurt them very much. As a Peruvian I want you guys to know that civil aviation in Peru has come a long way, if you ever think of a place to go for a holiday choose Peru, you won't regret it! Airlines are becoming better and better. I get the Peruvian news channel but I will not be able to see it until 20:00PST I will post anything that I may not see on here.

Well, what can one say. Things seem to balance themselves out, last year being so good as far as accident's go and now this new year starts of like this. Is it confirmed that the plane has actually crashed?

Really saddened to hear this. This is TANS first accident, if I'm correct. I really hope that the situation is not what it appears, and my prayers go out for the victims and their families. Peru's last worst accidents happened in 1996 with the crash of AeroPeru's 757, off the coast of Lima, and Faucett's 737 crash in Arequipa, both of which left no survivors. Both were major determining factors in both of the carriers shut downs.
However, recent reports are suggesting that the plane hasn't crashed but instead made an emergency landing somewhere in the amazon jungle. Now lets remember that not too long ago a TAM F-100 also made an emergency landing (hull loss nonetheless) in grassy terrain in Brazil. There is unconfirmed reports that say that one of the passengers has made contact with his relatives in Lima by cell phone and has stated that there is no deaths involved only two injuries sustained while evacuating the aircraft. These are still unconfirmed reports.

I feel the same way right know that i felt 2001 when the AA A300 went down in Queens. First it was Sept 11th then the SAS crash in milano and then the AA crash. I was really quite shocked by that chain of events in such a small time frame.
