Shortly before the crash the plane crashed into a hillside near Medellin, Colombia, said one of the crew members aboard the air traffic controllers, "the Plane is in complete electrical failure and no fuel," says the audio.
Investigators have discovered new details of the last moments before the plane crash which killed 71 people, including members of the Brazilian football team. They also presented additional evidence confirming the suspicions of investigators that the plane crashed from lack of fuel.
An audio recording was published in the Colombian media. Brazilian football team "Epicoene" was on his way to the final of the South American Cubka Medellin. Three players, two crew members and one journalist survived, said Colombian authorities. CNN reported on Tuesday evening that investigators consider the fuel shortage as the main point of the accident, according to a person familiar with early stages of the investigation. The lack of visible damage from a fire among the wreckage of the British aerospace Avro RJ85 shows that the fuel tanks were dry when he hit the ground.
The exhaustion of fuel occurs when the fuel is cut off from the engines, forcing them to stop work. This can be caused by a number of factors, including fuel leakage, internal icing, failure of fuel pumps or sensors, or crew error control the use of engine fuel.
Colombian civil aviation refused to comment further technical details. The photos released by authorities show the wreckage of the four engines Avro RJ85 scattered on a slope without visible charring.
