Aerosucre 727F crashes in Colombia; kills five

Colombia civil aviation has ordered an investigation into the crash of an Aerosucre Boeing 727 freighter that killed five of six crew members aboard the aircraft two days ago.
The 727F took off from Puerto Carreño Airport (PCR) on runway 24 at 17.20 (local time) and crashed shortly after that. Video circulating on social media shows the aircraft hitting an airport perimeter fence as it struggled to get airborne. According to Colombia’s Aeronáutica Civil agency, the 727F crashed 10 miles from the airport. The flight was heading for Bogota. Aeronáutica Civil said five crew members were killed and a sixth was hospitalized.
The 727-2JO Freighter was registered HK-4544 (CN 21105) and first flew on the 22nd August 1975, making the aircraft just over 40 years old. It was powered by 3 Pratt & Whitney JT8D-15 engines. The 727F was one of two aircraft in Colombian cargo carrier Aerosucre’s fleet and has been flying with Aerosucre for almost 8 years.
