Pilot and Student Die After Plane Crash in Nandayure

A pilot and an aviation student died after the plane they were traveling in collided with a hill and collapsed in Corozalito de Nandayure, Guanacaste, around 11:40 a.m. on Saturday.

The plane with the call letters TI-BIL had all its papers in order, informed Aviacion Civil

Authorities indicated that, for the moment, it is unknown what could have caused the crash, which occurred 500 meters north of the airstrip in the area, very close to where another small plane crashed last December, killing 10 passengers and the two pilots.
