LIMA, Peru (AP) - A small plane carrying British tourists has crashed near the famed Nazca Lines in Peru, killing all six people on board.
The victims were listed as four Britons -- three men and a woman -- and the pilot and co-pilot, both Peruvian.
Nazca's police chief says the Cessna plane apparently had engine trouble that led it to crash in a field.
The Nazca Lines are mysterious geoglyphs etched into the desert centuries ago by indigenous groups. It's a UNESCO World Heritage Site and one of Peru's leading tourist attractions.
The glyphs are only fully recognizable from the air, and 30-minute overflights are popular with travelers.
However there have been allegations of lax supervision of the several-dozen aging planes that make the flights.
In February, a Cessna 206 carrying three Chileans and four Peruvians over the lines crashed and killed everyone on board.
