RIO DE JANEIRO, November 18. /ITAR-TASS/. The Boeing 737-500 that crashed at the airport of Kazan 12 years ago appeared in the summary of accidents in Brazil. This is evidenced by the data preserved in Brazilian media and reports of national services responsible for safety of air traffic.
Rescuers managed to evacuate all passengers and crew members. The severe accident then didn’t claim lives. However, the jet suffered extensive damage and needed serious reparation to step back into operation.
Then, the Boeing 737-500 was operated by Brazilian air carrier Rio Sul that specialized in regional traffic. After that, Rio Sul joined Varig Airlines that, in its turn, shut down in 2006 due to financial problems.
The written off Boeing 737-500 jet was produced in 1990.
