Un error del piloto causó el accidente aéreo del Champecoense

 12/27/2016 - 16:17

Las autoridades colombianas han dicho que el accidente aéreo del Champecoense, que causó la muerte de casi todos los jugadores del equipo de fútbol a las afueras de Medellín (Colombia), fue causado por un error del piloto.

El avión operado por la compañía chárter boliviana LaMia, se estrelló a kilómetros del aeropuerto debido a que el piloto no recargó el combustible del avión en la ruta y no advirtió a nadie sobre el fallo del motor causado por la falta de combustible hasta que fue demasiado tarde.

Pilot Error caused Champecoense Plane Crash

 12/27/2016 - 10:04

Colombian authorities have said that the Champecoense plane crash that killed all but three futbol players last month outside of Medellin, Colombia was caused by pilot error.

The plane operated by the Bolivian charter company LaMia, crashed miles from the airport because the pilot failed to refuel the plane while in route and did not warn anyone of the engine failure caused by lack of fuel until it was too late.
