A plane carrying 19 people has crashed on a mountainous region outside Rio de Janeiro, killing all aboard, civil defense officials said Saturday. The small LET 410 double-propeller plane belonging to the local Team airline went missing Friday night about 20 minutes after leaving the city of Macae, 180 kilometers east of Rio de Janeiro, said Roni Alberto de Azevedo, a spokesman with the Rio de Janeiro State Civil Defense Department. Rescue workers found the plane's wreckage in Saquarema, some 100 kilometers east of Rio, nearly 10 hours after it disappeared from radar screens.
