Colombian Authorities Intercept Plane That Entered National Airspace

BOGOTA – Colombian authorities intercepted a plane that had illegally entered the Andean nation’s airspace, the air force said in a statement Tuesday.

The aircraft, which was flying at low altitude and had “ignored warnings,” was forced to land on a beach in the southwestern town of Lopez de Micay, the statement added.

The plane, which was disabled once on the ground, had the capacity to transport up to 700 kilos of illegal substances, authorities said.

The statement said the air force had detected a total of three illegal aircraft, two in the Caribbean that eventually stayed out of Colombia’s airspace and one on the Pacific side that required the activation of interdiction procedures.

Authorities have launched an operation aimed at tracking down the crew members of the disabled aircraft.
