10 killed as plane crashes in Colombia’s southwestern jungle

BOGOTA, Colombia: A small commercial plane carrying eight passengers and two crew members went down in Colombia’s southwestern jungle shortly after take-off, killing all persons on board.

The officials said that the twin-engine Piper PA-31 Navajo aircraft took off from Araracuara Airport in the country’s south at around 3:00 pm local time (2000 GMT) on Saturday.

But the aircraft lost contact with air traffic control as it went over the town of Florencia and crashed moments later.

The officials said that the cause of the crash has not yet been determined but it appeared that the plane suffered an engine failure shortly after takeoff.
