Inquest To Examine Peru Air Crash Which Led To Deaths Of Four Britons

Hearing To Be Held Next Week


An inquest is to be held in High Wycombe next week to examine the deaths of four Britons killed in a light plane crash while en route to see a popular tourist attraction in Peru last year.

Passengers including Gayle Callow, 34, and Andrew Brown, 30, died alongside two Peruvian crew members when the Cessna C185 aircraft, operated by Air Nazca, apparently lost power and came down in a field while travelling to the Nazca Lines World Heritage Site on October 2nd.

The inquest into the deaths of all four British passengers is listed as a one-day hearing and is set to be held at 1pm on September 27th before coroner Richard Hulett at The Coroner’s Court, Court 3, Wycombe Law Courts, High Wycombe.

Jim Morris, former RAF pilot and Partner in Irwin Mitchell’s Aviation Law team, is acting as counsel to the families of Ms Callow, from Bracknell, and Mr Brown, from High Wycombe, at the hearing.

He said: “This crash was a terrible tragedy, and it is concerning that the accident report published by Peruvian authorities highlighted a chain of events in the lead-up to the crash which we hope this hearing will consider in more detail.

“Both Gayle and Andrew’s families have endured an incredibly difficult past 12 months and we hope that this hearing will finally provide answers about what led to the deaths of their loved ones.”
