Brazil gets help with airspace
by UPI

SAO PAULO -- The International Air Traffic Controllers Federation offered Brazil help in regulating its airspace after a deadly crash killed 199 last week.

However, Brazilian aviation officials Monday said they would handle the problem on their own, O Globo TV reported.

Last weekend, radar guiding planes over the Brazilian Amazon failed, forcing several flights from the United States to turn around and return home.

Last Tuesday, a commercial airliner skidded off the runway during heavy rains at Congonhas Airport in Sao Paulo and slammed into a gas station, setting the plane on fire.
