Colombia Plane Ran Out of Fuel, Pilot Said before Crash

The pilot of the plane that crashed in Colombia had radioed he was running out of fuel and in an emergency, according to a recording of his final communications.

Monday night’s disaster killed 71 people, including most of Brazil’s Chapecoencse football team en route to a cup final in Colombia, and sent shock waves round the global football world.

“Miss, LAMIA 933 is in total failure, total electrical failure, without fuel,” the Bolivian pilot Miguel Quiroga is heard telling a control tower operator at Medellin airport on the crackly audio played by Colombian media.

“Fuel emergency, Miss,” he added, requesting urgent permission to land, according to a report covered by Khabar Online.
