February 10 Asunción News: The Paraguayan military confirmed on the evening of the 9th that a small military plane crashed in the central Paraguayan city of Luke on the same day, killing seven people and seriously injuring one person.
General Paredes, the head of the Paraguayan Air Force, announced at the press conference that the crashed aircraft was a Cessna 402 twin-engine aircraft, which took off from Fort Olympo near the Brazilian border and was ready to return to its air base in Luke.
