LA PAZ, BOLIVIA — Two airmen died when their small military plane crashed while rehearsing stunts for the anniversary of the Bolivian air force, a local television station said Wednesday.

The Bolivia-made Tiluchi FAB-542 crashed in a Santa Cruz aerodrome during a landing maneuver, said the ATB television network, which showed images of the wreckage.

Authorities did not immediately say what caused the crash, but witnesses said it was possible the plane’s engine failed.

Military police officials said the two victims — a colonel and a lieutenant — were killed instantly.
