AeroPeru had suffered two fatal events (including Flight 603). The last one ultimately led to the airline's demise. Before the take-off of flight 603, the maintance crew erroneously left masking tape over the sensitive static ports of the plane, leading to serious and ultimately fatal contradictory and false emergency messages which the crew kept receiving after take-off. This prevented even ground radar from successfully assisting the flight crew during the emergengy, and ultimately led to the plane's crash into the Pacific Ocean on October 2, 1996. This was a severe blow to the airline and one from which it could never recover. AeroPeru Flight 603 was a scheduled Santiago-Lima-Mexico City_Los Angeles-Miami flight which crashed on October 2, 1996. ... 1996 is a leap year starting on Monday of the Gregorian calendar, and was designated the International Year for the Eradication of Poverty. ...
