    Almost certainly. They would have lost everything but emergency electrics (BAT). No RAT on the Avro AFAIK.

    Big unknown factor: what fuel tank configuration did this a/c have (any what was the fuel order)?

    More info and photos added to the avherald article.
    This one particularly called my attention:

    Emergency services reported the aircraft did not catch fire increasing the chances of survivors.
    The head of investigation stated: "No existe evidencia de combustible en la aeronave" (there is no evidence of fuel in the aircraft).


    This was a rumor last night reported by some media. Now it looks more official and likely to be a direct link with the cause of the crash.

    Reports of another plane approaching the airport asked priority, ATC putting the CP-2933 on holding pattern before clearance to land.
    Apparently no signs of fire in the crash site.
    Possibility of an Avianca Flight 52 like scenario.
    Sad.

    Thoughts for the victims, and the survivors, and all their families, friends & loved ones.
