The world of soccer or football as it’s called throughout the globe is in mourning after a chartered plane carrying the Chapecoense Brazilian soccer team to the most important match in the club’s history crashed into a Colombian hillside killing 75 people and leaving six survivors, after departing Santa Cruz Bolivia on Monday.

Aviation officials said Tuesday the British Aerospace 146 short-haul plane, operated by a charter airline lost radar contact around 10 p.m. Monday (0300 GMT Tuesday) due to an electrical failure minutes before the flight was scheduled to land in Medellin, Colombia.

The upstart Chapecoense soccer team was traveling to Colombia from southern Brazil the first leg of a two-game Copa Sudamericana final against Atletico Nacional of Medellin — the continent’s second-most-important championship, which was slated to be played on Wednesday.

New daylight images of the crash site and video released by authorities in Antioquia, Colombia shows the extent of the debris field left by Monday night’s tragic plane crash.
