Two web links provide different glimpses of the tragic airplane shoot down in the drug war over Peru last April. One is the just released State Department report on the incident, posted at http://www.state.gov/g/inl/rls/rpt/pir/index.cfm?docid=4397 online. The second link is to chilling video and audio footage from inside the plane's cockpit as the tragedy unfolded -- http://video.ibsys.com/video.cfm?ID=901895&owner=cnn for video-enabled web browsers.
