Of 61 people on board, only 15 passengers and five crew are known to have survived when a Peruvian air force Antonov An-32 crashed on approach to Piura, Peru on 29 March. The fatal flight was providing an air bridge service, ferrying goods and passengers between Tiumba and Piura because torrential rain had destroyed road connections to many communities. Early reports suggest that the aircraft lost power on one engine and crashed into a canal about 2km (1nm) from the runway.
