Drug Flight Down In Colombia, 3 Americans Killed
by The Associated Press
BOGOTA, Colombia (AP) — A small plane on a U.S. counter-drug mission crashed Saturday in a remote, jungle region of northern Colombia, killing three Americans and a Panamanian National Guardsman and seriously injuring the other two Americans aboard.
The Havilland Dash 8 was flying over the western Caribbean when it lost radio contact with the U.S.-sponsored multinational task force in Key West, Florida that runs drug interdiction in region, the U.S. military said.
Such planes typically track speedboats that smuggle cocaine from Colombia north into Central America and the Caribbean but U.S. Southern Command spokesman Lt. Cmdr. Ron Flanders said he did not have details on the mission.
It was not immediately clear if the Americans aboard were all military contractors, although Southcom did say that plane was contracted by the U.S. government.
