Canavia Líneas Aéreas Crash Kills Three


On October 28, 2013, a CANAVIA Líneas Aéreas Piper PA-28RT-201T Turbo Arrow IV out of Gran Canaria airport was on a training night flight when it crashed.

The three people aboard died on impact which occurred in dense fog in the mountainous La Palma area.

In the night, the beacon was detected in Tamadaba, which assisted in the search the next day.

The remains were located in the Pinar de Tamadaba, between the ravine of La Palma and Palo. Canary Island 112, and the Emergency Coordination Center responded to the scene.

Two helicopters were on the scene to convey the victims’ remains to grancanario de Gáldar.

Gol: US Pilots to Face Retrial in Absentia

Joseph Lepore of Bay Shore, New York, and Jan Paladino were flying the Embraer Legacy 600 executive jet that collided with a Boeing 737 operated by Gol Lineas Aereas Intelligentes SA. Lepore and Paladino guided the plane they were flying to safely while the larger jet crashed into the jungle, killing all aboard. The pilots were convicted in 2011 and sentenced to 52 months in prison because according to prosecutors, the aircraft’s anti-collision system was turned off for almost one hour. The pilots deny wrongdoing, and say the system was never off.

Lepore and Paladino are to be retried Monday.
