Jet may have run out of fuel
Fuel starvation occurs when fuel is cut off from the engines, causing them to stop running. It can be caused by a number of factors including a fuel leak, internal icing, failure of the fuel pumps or gauges, or crew error.
Alfredo Bocanegra, director of the Colombia Civil Aviation Authority, said even though a preliminary investigation pointed to an electrical problem, the possibility the plane ran out of fuel has not been ruled out, CNN Italian affiliate ANSA reported. However, Bocanegra said investigators would have to ascertain why the aircraft didn’t have enough fuel, because it was just 5 miles away from the airport.
The Colombian Civil Aviation Authority declined to comment further on technical details.


The surviving players were Alan Ruschel, Follmann (who had one of his legs amputated due to his injuries) and Neto. The other survivors were a journalist, Rafael Henzel of Rádio Oeste, and two members of the flight crew: a flight attendant and a flight technician, both of Bolivian nationality.

In an interview with the press, the flight technician mentioned that he survived because he followed the emergency protocols by putting his baggage between his legs and sitting in brace position. He mentioned that several of the passengers were standing up when the accident occurred. Danilo initially survived the crash, but later died in hospital.

Associação Chapecoense de Futebol, commonly known as Chapecoense and whose acronym is ACF, is a Brazilian football club, based in the city of Chapecó in the state of Santa Catarina.

On November 28, 2016, a charter flight carrying the first team crashed as it approached Medellín’s international airport in Colombia, where the team was scheduled to play the first leg of the 2016 Copa Sudamericana final against Atlético Nacional, a match that was seen as the biggest in the history of the club. All but six of the 77 passengers died; three Chapecoense players survived (another, Danilo, survived the crash but later died in hospital).

Following the crash, Atlético Nacional made a request to the governing body of the competition that Chapecoense be awarded the trophy.

LaMia Airlines Flight 2933 (LMI 2933) crashed on 28 November 2016 while transporting the Brazilian Chapecoense football team from Santa Cruz de la Sierra, Bolivia, to José María Córdova International Airport in Medellín, Colombia. The airliner, an Avro RJ85, carried 77 people: sixty-eight passengers, which included the team and 21 journalists, and a crew of nine. The team was en route to play the 2016 Copa Sudamericana Finals against Colombian team Atlético Nacional.[2][3][4] Six people survived the crash. The Colombian Special Administrative Unit of Civil Aeronautics is investigating the incident with support from the British Air Accidents Investigation Branch.

The Aeronautica Civil government agency in Colombia confirmed six survivors of the crash: two crew members, three athletes and one journalist. However, even though Chapecoense goalkeeper Marcos Danilo was rescued from the plane and treated at a hospital, he died from his injuries, according to The Associated Press.
