Venezuela shoots down two light aircraft
2013-10-22 11:00:24 | (0 Comments)
Venezuela says two light aircraft have been shot down after entering the country's airspace over the weekend.
The country's security forces said these were the first mid-air attacks by fighter jets since a bill authorising such action against illegal planes was approved earlier this month.
The aircraft were allegedly smuggling drugs from Central America and refused to follow the military pilots' orders.
Another 11 unauthorised planes have been disabled on the ground this year.
