Plane That Jenni Rivera Crashed In Had Malfunctioned Before
Posted by Joseph Lee on 12.10.2012



The Huffington Post reports that the plane that crashed on Sunday morning and killed Mexican-American singer Jenni Rivera had been used for 43 years and malfunctioned once in 2005.

The cause of the plane crash isn't known these days, but the U.S. Federal Aviation Administration showed the Learjet 25 was first built in 1969. While trying to take off in Amarillo in 2005, there was a fuel system malfunction, which caused one wing to weigh more than the other. No one was injured at that time.

Five people were on board the plane when it crashed on Sunday. These included Rivera, the pilots (Miguel Pérez and Alejandro Torres), her publicist and her makeup artist. Police and forensic experts previously found Rivera's driver's license and an ID belong to 78-year-old pilot Perez.

Her family confirmed the death outside their home in Los Angeles. Her father, Pedro Rivera, said: "My queen, we will see each other again soon. We thought it was a press speculation, we wanted to believe that. But it's true, my daughter is dead."

Her brothers Pedro, Gustavo and Juan will travel to Mexico on Tuesday to identify the body and return it to Los Angeles where they plan to bury her.
