Alianza Peruvian First-Division Soccer Team

Date: 12/8/1987
Crash Site: Lima, Peru

Just six miles from its landing point, the Peruvian Navy Fokker F27-400M holding the team miscalculated the landing and dove straight into the Pacific Ocean. Only the pilot survived the tragedy, of which investigation reports cite a lack of night-flying experience and a mishandling of emergency procedures. Sixteen players were killed.
