SANTIAGO: Climbers in Chile’s Andes say they have found the wreckage of a missing plane that disappeared more than half a century ago with a team of soccer stars on board. Images of the twisted wreck of the LAN Chile Douglas DC-3 that went down April 3, 1961 were shown on Chilean television on Sunday (Monday in Manila), released by the climbers who said the find was in Maule, about 300 kilometers (190 miles) south of Santiago. The plane was carrying 34 people when it crashed, with all presumed dead. They included eight members of the Green Cross football squad, team coach Arnaldo Vasquez, and other team staff and friends who were coming back to Santiago from a match in Osorno.
