The Douglas DC-3 plane disappeared en route from Osorno to the capital city of Santiago on April 3, 1961.

The plane was carrying 24 passengers including 8 members of a professional football team.

The BBC reported that mountaineers discovered the aircraft about 360km south of Santiago at an altitude of 3,200 metres.
