The Dirección General de Aviación Civil is staging a plane crash drill today at 3 p.m. at Daniel Oduber in Liberia.
The scenario is that a passenger jet has trouble with its landing gear, slides off the runway, ruptures a wing tank and bursts into flames.
Some 17 agencies will be involved in the hour-long exercise, said Aviación civil.
The idea is to evaulate how the various agencies work together during a disaster. Such simulations are common.
