Peruvian Air Force Shot Down An American Plane!

Sun Apr 22, 2001 4:48 am

I got this from the Finnish News so i'm sorry for the crappy translation:
"Two peole died and two got injured when a Peruvian Air Force plane shot down a US general aviation aircraft. The people who died were missionaries on their way to the town of Pebas which lies in the Amazon rainforest.

According to local radiostations the Air Force pilot had thought that the aircraft shot down was smuggling drugs, the Peruvian Military hasn't confirmed that."
