Small plane crash in Brazil

By George Hatcher


An Embraer EMB-201A Ipanema was en route from Paracatu MG to Goinia when the pilot had to make a forced landing in a field. The plane was commonly used as a cropduster.

The plane had had a fuel supply problem before but apparently this time the problem was in the fuel pump/power system.

The pilot was uninjured but the plane sustained some damage. There was no fire, but firefighters were on hand, and there was a fuel leak.

Centro de Investigação e Prevenção de Acidentes Aeronáuticos (Cenipa) will be investigating.
