Brazil mourned the death of 71 after a BAe 146 aircraft crashed in a mountainous terrain, 50 miles
southeast to Medellín, Columbia. The passengers included members of Chapecoense, a Brazilian football team which was to play in one of South America’s most distinguished tournaments against Athletico Nacional on Wednesday.
The plane started off its journey in São Paulo, Brazil and stopped at The Viru Viru International Airport, Bolivia from where it took off again at 6:18 p.m. local time. Investigators’ examination say jet may have run out of fuel. The jet was told to circle at 21,000ft when it was put in third or fourth position in line to land at the José María Córdova International Airport and had circled around a number of times before the catastrophe. The plane reported an emergency due to electrical failures around 10 p.m. on Monday night and crashed soon in Cerro El Gordo near Medellin. The six survivors include two crew members, a flight technician, three players and a journalist.
