Fallen Plane Might Fly Back to Sancti Spiritus Friday

Gisselle Morales

Depending on the results of preliminary tests, the AN-2CX light aircraft that fell on the Escambray mountains due to an engine failure, might be able to take off this Friday. The plane fell on a completely-surrounded-by-hills area, but the pilot was skilful enough to get it landed over the only piece of plain ground.A team of workers from the Air Service National Company (ENSA, in Spanish) travelled there the same day of the accident in order to get the craft repaired and then build an improvised takeoff strip.

ENSA’s technician Jorge Luis Santiesteban told Escambray digital that the plane might be able to take off this Friday, since the machinery (Polish) is a quality one and he affirmed to have solved similar problems before.
