Leticia, ColombiaThe Boeing 727 belonging to Aerosucre was on a cargo flight from Bogota, Colombia, to Leticia, Colombia. The plane crashed as it approached Leticia airport in Colombia's Amazon region, killing the three crew members and two passengers.

The airplane was on a visual approach when it stroke a 150-foot television antenna about 2 miles (3 km) from the airport.
