One of the K-8W Karakoram training and light attack aircraft of the Bolivian Air Force crashed into a house while flying over the city of Cochabamba. According to initial reports, the crew successfully disembarked, but the plane fell on a house in the populated area of Sacaba. The reports show at least two deaths, as well as the demolition of this home and damage to another.
The Bolivian Air Force acquired six K-8W Karakoram training jets in 2010 at a cost of $ 57.8 million and arrived in the country in June 2011. The above machines, along with a simulator, support and spare parts, were assigned to Grupo Areo 34 Tcnl Rafael Pabn, a unit based in Cochabamba. (License Marcela V. Carol)
