This particular plane crashed today on its way to Medellin's airport, killing at least 76 people. He was carring the Brazilian team of Chapecoense that would play a game Wednesday in the first of two-game Copa Sudamericana final against Atletico Nacional of Medellin.
This particular aircraft made a refuel stop a year ago at Lajes! Sad moment. My condolences to all families and friends of the victims.
