Also on Saturday night, the twin engine was removed from the waterfall (and placed on a plot of land next to the waterfall itself). Although the action was scheduled to take place this Sunday (7), the aircraft had to be removed beforehand to prevent a possible flood or the incidence of rain at the site from jeopardizing the work of the expert.

The singer Marília Mendonça died at the age of 26, last Friday. Besides her, died Henrique Ribeiro, producer; Abicieli Silveira Dias Filho, uncle and advisor; Geraldo Martins de Medeiros Junior, pilot of the plane; and Tarcisio Pessoa Viana, co-pilot. The group traveled from Goiania to Caratinga, where Marília would make a presentation.

Cenipa investigators were sent to Minas Gerais from Rio de Janeiro, where one of the agency’s regional bases operates. The calculation of FAB seeks to identify the causes of the accident to prevent similar events. The appointment of possible responsibilities will be the responsibility of the police.

At the site, Air Force investigators hear witnesses who can give information about the route. They also photograph the scenes, gather documents and remove parts of the aircraft for analysis. According to the FAB, there is no estimated time for the duration of these first measures. The deadline depends on the complexity of the occurrence.

The wires in the region usually interfere with the landing of planes, to the point that it is even avoided by those who know the area, reported pilots heard by the state.
