Aerolineas Abaroa

Aerolineas Abaroa Monday September 10, 1962
The failure of the left engine and execution of a sharp 180 degree turn to the left of the original flight path. This was the only possible maneuver since the valley ahead narrowed and a turn to the right could not be effected, because the aircraft was close to - and below the altitude of - a mountain on that side.
