Aircraft Incident

891 - DHC-6-400 FAP 306 Fuerza Aérea del Perú, Iquitos

Damaged during runway excursion on landing at Iquitos, Peru 15-Aug-2017. The aircraft was on a training flight at the time, and there were no serious injuries.

You have to note the striking similarity in the resting position of FAP 306 when compared to the last two DHC-6-400 incidents in Taiwan and  Japan. There were also two prior MASWings excursions as well, although luckily, those aircraft did not end up in the bushes adjacent to the runway.
