  • On May 20, 1989, a newly built Peruvian National Police Cessna 208 Caravan (PNP-021) that had left Tingo María, crashed into Mount Huacranacro, 100 km (62.5 mls) east of Huaral. The 9 occupants were killed.[7]
  • On February 25, 1994, an Expresso Aéreo Yakovlev Yak-40 (OB-1559), piloted by two Russians and one Peruvian,[8] struck Mount Carpish six minutes after leaving Tingo María, Peru for Lima.
