Chapecoense crash

A LAMIA Bolivia Avro RJ85, CP-2933, has crashed near Medellin, Colombia last night, killing 76 people on board and leaving only 5 survivors. The aircraft carried the team and staff of the Brazilian football team Chapecoense which was due to play the Final of the Copa Sudamericana (second-tier South-American Cup).

The aircraft was 17 years old at the time of the crash and was initially delivered to Mesaba Airlines in the U.S., where it flew on behalf of Northwest Airlines. Later, in 2007 it was transferred to CityJet, where it wore the colours of Air France and was deployed from Paris CDG and London City. Since 2013 it was with LAMIA, wearing several registrations from Aruba, Venezuela and Bolivia.

On the photo, the crashed RJ85 was taxiing at Paris CDG airport in June 2009.
