A cargo aeroplane, which was carrying mail and packages, broke into two pieces during an emergency landing in Costa Rica on Thursday. This unexpected accident provoked the temporary shutdown of the international airport in San Jose.
A video of the same is currently going viral on the internet in which smoke was seen billowing from the bright yellow plane as it ground to a halt.
As per reports, two crew members aboard the DHL Boeing 757 Freighter were in a good condition, said the chief of Costa Rica’s firefighters, Hector Chaves.
The Guatemalan pair were sent to a hospital as a safety measure for a medical check-up, according to Guido Vasquez, a Red Cross worker.
The pilot was shaken up, but both crew were conscious and remember everything graphically, added Vasquez. The incident caused operations to shut down at the nation’s biggest airport, impacting hundreds of flights and over 8,000 passengers.
