Small Aircraft Crashes In Northern Brazil

Tue Oct 03, 2006 2:39 am

O Globo is reporting that a Piper Cherokee has crashed in the northern state of Maranhão, killing all 3 occupants (one pilot and 2 pax). One of the wings detached from the aircraft, which entered an unrecoverable spin and crashed about 70km from São Luís, the state's capital.

Now they're reporting that the aircraft exploded just 100m off the runway at their destination, and no details about what caused the explosion are known.
