In Guanacaste, Plane Propeller Slices Through Pickup Truck Like Paper

A fumigating plane that was on the ground lost control and hit a pickup that was on the runway. The propeller hit the box of the pickup truck and cut it as if it were paper. The incident occurred this Thursday shortly before 8:00 a.m. on the Cerritos airstrip, inside a farm located in Liberia, Guanacaste.

“The aircraft, with the call letters TI-ABM, was with the engine running as part of the equipment was being cleaned, when a compartment was opened by a lever that accelerated the propeller,” said Rolando Richmond, deputy director of Civil Aviation.

“The plane began to move uncontrollably until the propeller repeatedly hit a vehicle from the Central Azucarera del Tempisque Sociedad Anónima (Catsa) that was parked, as well as a nearby supply warehouse,” added Richmond.

No one was hurt in the incident.
