Washington Post Americans Shot Down Over Peru: "A source familiar with the situation said the Peruvian air force pilot tried repeatedly to raise the private plane on radio, then attempted to signal the plane to land by tipping its wings and finally by rapidly flying in front of it. After failing to provoke the plane to move into a landing position, the Peruvian pilot apparently fired on the plane." More details emerge on the fatal incident. 27 plane were shot down between 1994 and 1997, with US support. Also look at Association of Baptists for World Evangelism with pictures of all Americans involved, including Roni and Charity Bowers, the two killed in the incident. The posting also explains that the plane was returning from the Peru-Brazil border where the Bowers were dealing with the baby's visa. Thanks to Peru veteran Jim Wesberry for the pointer.
