On February 27, 2008, at 0948 Chilean standard time, a Cessna 210M, Chilean registration CC-KKU, operated by Club Aereo de Personal de Carabineros, was destroyed during a forced landing in the Penalolen Municipal Stadium, in the southeast quadrant of Santiago, Chile. Two pilots and four passengers onboard the airplane were fatally injured, as were five people on the ground. Over 20 people on the ground were also seriously injured.
