Apparently the same Airline had a major incident with a 737 just three days ago!

Make sure you grab your luggage before evacuating and get that "selfie" in before you get away from a burning craft.

Whatever had happen, that would be the worst place to have a mishap.
Definitely a survivable landing, the plane was in decent shape, firetruck came on time, but broke exactly where the foam spray may not reach the fire or plainly failed.
As a result the plane is totaly charbroiled.

Did that used to be Aeroperu? If so I have used it many times from Lima to outlying areas.

Not a pilot, but to me, that approach looked really fast. I don't recall seeing the scenery fly by the cabin window that fast the last time I was in a 737.

The airport's altitude is over 11,000 ft. The air is less dense at that altitude so the approach speed must be higher to generate the required amount of lift.
