A Brazilian jetliner, Gol airlines Flight 1907, with 155 people aboard crashed in the Amazon jungle after reportedly colliding with a smaller ExcelAire executive jet carrying 16 passengers. The Legacy jet stabilized after the apparent collision and then landed at a Brazilian air force base in the Amazon state of Para. It was later reported that the US executive jet was at the wrong altitude and Brazil confiscated the passports of the pilots. In November it was reported that the flight recorder transcript from the executive jet involved in the air disaster showed that the jet's American pilots were told by Brazilian air traffic control to fly at the same altitude as a Boeing 737 before the planes collided over the Amazon rainforest. Pilots Joseph Lepore (42), of Bay Shore, N.Y., and Jan Paladino (34), of Westhampton Beach, N.Y., were allowed to return to the US on Dec 8 after signing a document promising to return to Brazil for their trial or when required by local authorities. In 2010 Air force Sgt. Jomarcelo Fernandes dos Santos was sentenced to 14 months in jail for failing to take action when he saw that the Legacy's anti-collision system had been turned off. In 2011 the American pilots were sentenced to four years of unspecified community service in the USA. On May 19 air traffic controller Lucivando de Alencar was convicted of endangering air safety and sentenced to three years and four months of community service.
