Bodies of 71 people including players, coaches and staff from a Brazilian football team tragically wiped out in a plane crash in Colombia arrived home for a massive funeral. The first of two Brazilian air force planes carrying the remains of a football team arrived in the city of Chapeco in southern Brazil. More than 100,000 people are expected to attend a memorial service at Chapecoense’s stadium in Chapeco. Fireworks lit up the sky over the stadium in Chapeco, in southern Brazil, as the Hercules cargo planes touched down at the city’s airport in pouring rain. The small city is holding a huge funeral to honor its team, Chapecoense real — an unsung club having a fairytale season until the plane flying it to the biggest match in its history ran out of fuel and smashed into the mountains outside Medellin on Monday night. The lamia Bolivia bae146 airliner apparently ran out of fuel, lost electrical power and was preparing for an emergency landing when it crashed. Only six people survived, including three members of the soccer squad en route to the Copa Sudamericana final, the biggest game in its history. The tragedy plunged brazil into mourning as the entire soccer team was killed in the crash.
