LA PAZ BCS: Soft landing on highway No. 1

Two pilots from the Mexican Navy Flight School made an emergency landing on Transpeninsular Highway No. 1, 39 kilometers north of La Paz this afternoon.

The Zlin 242L training aircraft, with registration number ANX 1422, was manned by two pilots when they suddenly reported via radio that they had a mechanical failure, so they would proceed to make an emergency landing over the highway.

Fortunately, at one o'clock this afternoon there was not much traffic, which allowed the military pilots to make a landing without major complications.

Both pilots were not injured, so following the protocols  were transferred to the naval clinic.

Officers of the Mexican Navy were present at the site and started maneuvers to remove the aircraft and return it to its base, located next to the International Airport of La Paz.
