    PLANE GOES DOWN WITH 173 KILOS DOWN AFTER TAKING OFF FROM TOBIAS BOLANOS PAVAS, west of San Jose with a shipment of cocaine that was destined for Guatemala.

    The aircraft was transporting 173 kilos of drugs and at 8:05 am, just moments after takeoff the plane flew approximately two kilometers before going down in Torres River Gorge.

    Its two occupants, Monzón and Ramirez (both Guatemalans) were seriously injured.

    The plane, a Piper Cherokee, registered to an export company of Guatemala, arrived Thursday at the airport.

    Poor regulation and controls are to blame admitted Public Security Minister, Jose Maria Tijerina.

    The traffickers hid the loading on the fuel tanks located in the wings, and authorities suspect that overweight in the wings affected the maneuverability of the single-engine plane.
