A report by the Brazilian Air Forces says a series of factors contributed to the plane crash that killed presidential candidate Eduardo Campos.
Air Force officials investigating the August 2014 crash said Tuesday that bad weather and a sudden change in the small plane’s trajectory were among the elements that contributed to the crash near Sao Paulo, which killed the Socialist party candidate and six others. Other circumstances, such as crew fatigue, may have also played a part.
The investigators did not blame any individuals or companies for the crash, saying that was not their objective.
