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.

The spokeswoman for Catsa, Marissa Marín, stated that the aircraft is not theirs and did not work for that company at the time of the accident.
