Chapecoense’s players were on their way to play the biggest game in the club’s history when their flight went down on the approach to Medellin, killing 76 of the 81 people on board. The club's rise had been an extraordinary one, from the fourth level of Brazilian football to the final of the Copa Sudamericana in just eight years. But that game, against Atletico Nacional, will never be played.

British Aerospace 146 charter flight was en route from Santa Cruz de la Sierra, Bolivia, with a request to fly direct from Brazil having been rejected by the Brazilian civilian aviation authority for reasons that remain unclear. It had been given priority to land when contact was lost with ground authorities at around midnight, according to Alfredo Bocanegra, the head of Colombia’s civil aviation authority.

@ossobucotemp,
warning, this is hard to read when you get into the details, at least for me, so I won't add a clip.

Here's the link:
